Career opportunities

MA Screenwriting - Katie Lythgow

"If you want a career in TV/film and don't know where to start, I would recommend the MA for the insight it gives into the industry.

"It's not a typical academic course - it's very vocational and is focused on preparing you for a job."

Katie Lythgow / Junior Storyliner at Hollyoaks

This course is designed to train graduates to work in the UK film and television industries.

Some will work as professional screenwriters, while others may take up other, related, positions.

We offer talks from professionals in the industry and internship programmes to help you get an insight into what it's like to work in film and TV.

You can read profiles of some of our recent graduates to find out where they ended up working after completing the course - including two graduates who now work on Hollyoaks - on our student spotlights page.
