Why study film and television production at York?

At York, we have strong links to the creative industries through our award-winning teachers and creative practitioners.

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.
