Course programme

The Summer School is a two week intensive course delivered in late July and early August. Typically, teaching starts at 10am and finishes around 4pm. Students will then complete assignments by the following October with email back up from the course tutor. The course involves interactive lectures, in-class writing development sessions, informal group discussion, and peer group feedback. The course content is unavailable elsewhere and is both vocational and academic, enabling the student to gain skills required to teach film and media at advanced level, be successful in publishing ventures, and/or become a university academic.

Dr Fran Pheasant-Kelly, Reader in Screen Studies, and Scott Martin, Lecturer in Film and Media.
