Career opportunities

By teaching and developing a considerable range of transferable skills, this course enables you to keep open a wide range of career options.

Previous MA students have gone on to take up PhD study, with many then progressing to academic and teaching careers in further and higher education institutions.

Other former students have gone on to work for the BBC, independent television production companies and as festival organisers, as well as in film education and other areas of the film and screen media industry.

The University has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. At Manchester you will have access to a number of opportunities to help boost your employability .
