Develop the technical, critical and creative skills to realise your career ambitions in film and television production. Our suite of interconnected programmes allows you to pursue an individual specialism while working collaboratively on group projects in a professional production environment.

As part of the School of Arts and Creative Technologies, you will learn from experienced and award-winning teachers and creative practitioners, build a portfolio using industry-standard facilities and equipment, enhance your professional skills and employability, and benefit from being part of a wider creative community with extensive industry links.

I decided to pursue a masters degree in order to move my career forward. I hoped to get the experience and confidence that I could be thrown onto any set and know I'd succeed. I would recommend that if you are looking for a focused learning environment, instructors eager to teach and give advice, and a community that embraces its members, then York is perfect for you.
