Course programme

Work Placement

There is a work experience module that students can complete. The course has a dedicated Professional Development expert to help marry up students with work experience opportunities. The course also has numerous external facing clients such as BMW, Elstree Studios and Chapel Music that students can get involved in.

Studying on the Film and Television degree at Hertfordshire offers you the unique opportunity to gain accredited work experience on our own ongoing live research activity - The Elstree Project. Since the project began in 2010, over 40 students have been crew members on interview shoots with veterans from the film and television industry at the studios of Elstree and Borehamwood. Some of the stories our students have heard first-hand include what it was like to operate the film camera for Star Wars, design props for Stanley Kubrick, and floor manage The Muppet Show, all while getting the opportunity to further their practical filmmaking skills. Trips to the studios are a regular part of the project, and the work forms part of a vitally important archive.
