At The BRIT School we are passionate about all things media. The quality of British film, TV and radio production is highly regarded worldwide and they make a key contribution to the UK economy whilst at the same time adding to this country’s cultural richness. Within these industries there is a wide range of potential careers, from the creative, to the technical, and potential management roles. The skills that you will learn on our courses will prepare you for your first steps in an exciting and vibrant sector.

The UAL Extended Diploma Creative Media Production course has been designed to reflect both the film and broadcast industries. Using industry standard hardware, including a range of cameras and our own Radio and TV Studio (sponsored by YouTube Music), you will complete a wide range of industry-related projects, including music videos, short films, documentaries, and advertisements.
Alongside this you will collaborate on live broadcasts covering both TV and radio. Underpinning these practical projects are more theory-based assignments that cover subjects such as scriptwriting, film studies and industry related topics. Our students have undertaken placements on a range of productions, from feature films, to advertisements and radio. You’ll have the opportunity to contribute to a number of exciting projects covering filmmaking and live broadcast.
Every year, working as part of a crew, our students travel to a secret location for four days to shoot short films. BRIT Live is the department’s very own magazine style show that is broadcast monthly via YouTube. We celebrate the success of all of our students through the department’s annual award showcase held at the BFI Southbank.
What Qualities Do I Need?

It is essential that you are enthusiastic and can demonstrate both commitment and the ability to work as part of a team.
