What I would highlight The University of Coventry provided lots of professional opportunities, industry standard video equipment and good general support. The modules were usually practical which I enjoyed. My experience has been great so far. As for the staff there they were very helpful with me when I was getting my minibus liscence through the university. Throughout university I captained the snowsports team and would have to deal with the SU staff regularly. They were very helpful and would always do every thing they could to help the team. Nothing stands out other than the volunteering fair where they offer lots of community based activities for students to boost their cv and give back to the community.

This Media Production course runs in 2016/17.

In a constantly-changing, “24/7” multi-media landscape, anyone with a smartphone can make media. Our exciting course keeps you up-to-date with these changes and helps you
to develop the skills that you need to give you the edge in an increasingly competitive graduate market.


On our Media Production course you will be provided with the tools you need to learn how to become a media professional. You will use a range of media to create work that is innovative, inspired and challenging and will discover how to get that work noticed.

From the outset, we aim to develop your technical and creative abilities, giving you a thorough grounding in current and emerging media technologies, ways of working and contemporary professional practice.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • access to industry-standard professional equipment via our Media Loan Shop;
  • teaching staff who are all practitioners or researchers with active profiles in established and emerging ways of working and leading scholarship in their fields;
  • your own high-end laptop with the latest industry- standard production software, enabling you to benefit from mobile working and learning with 24/7 access (terms and conditions apply);
  • dedicated and flexible creative learning environments designed for the future;
  • the course’s dedicated media spaces, edit suites and industry-focused radio, photography and television studios;
  • links with a wide variety of employers, some established by our own graduates who now work in the media and cultural industries;
  • help applying for professional experience, placement opportunities and live professional projects: e.g. Regional BBC, Creative City, Rolls-Royce, BBC3;
  • the experience of a globalised curriculum: last year students participated in projects in France, Spain, Prague, China and many other locations.


In short you will learn to tell interesting stories and get your stories out to the largest possible audience.
So, in year one, you will cover the core themes of: Key Concepts in Media and Communication, Developing Meaning in Media Production, Creating Impact in Producing Media and Developing Narratives.

In year two, you will work individually and in small production teams and start to specialise in areas such as: Documentary Production, Formats Production, Sound and Music in the Digital World, Experimental Narrative, Short Film Production or Transcultural Film.

In your final year, you will work on your own final major project and develop your own professional practice portfolio that you can use when looking for work
after graduation.

In all three years, you will have the opportunity to take part in international trips where you will be able to develop your knowledge and skills through the production of individual and group media projects.


Your course will be based on a series of lectures, with associated seminars and workshop practical classes. Media Production is delivered though project-based ‘hands-on’ learning, with a great emphasis on location work, live projects and practice activities, all with on- going feedback. Your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice throughout the course.


An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: coursework, tests, essays 20%; practical or project work 70%; presentations, posters etc.10%.

A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.


In a typical teaching week you will have up to 15 contact hours of study (classroom, online etc) and this will break down as:

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 1 hour of tutorial each week

Medium group teaching: 12 hours of practical classes, workshops or seminars each week

Large group teaching: 2 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: 20+ hours of studying and revising in your own time each week
