Television degrees abroad

Television is a recent field of academic study where students develop the theoretical and practical skills needed to produce, analyze, and criticize videos. Television degrees are sometimes called television production, television and broadcasting, or film and television.

You’ll study a wide range of videos and consider how they’ve been influenced by the social and historical contexts in which they were set or produced. You’ll gain industry-level skills in camera-operating, producing, presenting, directing, writing, and editing, and use state-of-the-art equipment to create your own content.

Television is a global industry that is changing faster than ever as online streaming services emerge and take hold. By studying television abroad, you’ll be at the forefront of new developments and trends. You’ll connect with international professionals, explore new audiences, and gain a global understanding of the media landscape.

Television program structure

At the bachelor’s level, television programs are offered as both a BA and a BSc. The difference between the two programs is minimal, although you might find slightly more practical modules on a BSc program. Bachelor’s courses last for a minimum of three years, but most universities recommend that you take an extra placement or sandwich year to gain hands-on industry experience.

Once you’ve completed your bachelor’s, you can choose to study a postgraduate qualification. These programs are more research-focused and will ask you to specialize in a particular area. A master’s degree can be studied over one or two years, whereas a PhD can take between four and seven years of work.

You’ll encounter a variety of teaching methods on your degree, including lectures, seminars, practical workshops, and screenings. You’ll have the chance to use industry-standard equipment and many universities will arrange for professionals in the field to deliver guest talks.

You’ll be assessed through a combination of exams, essays, presentations, close analyses of television clips, and practical assessments.

Differences in cultural contexts and industry practices mean that television programs will vary between universities around the world. However, here are some core areas of study you can expect to find in most courses:

  • Principles of television production
  • Technical skills for television
  • Understanding media
  • Editing for video
  • Researching the media
  • Presenting and writing for television
