About Scriptwriting for Film and Television at Bournemouth University

The foundation of all film, TV, radio and narrative output is scriptwriting. On this course you’ll develop your abilities to create, develop and deliver ideas across a range of formats generating a portfolio of work.

You’ll learn how to develop, produce and critique scripts, as well as how to develop your creative and critically reflective voice and writing style. Writing for film, television, animation, theatre, radio and adaptation are encompassed, so that students have a firm foundation in a variety of narrative formats.

You’ll be taught by highly-skilled academic staff and professional practitioners, alongside regular guest speakers from the industry. They will help you develop a professional approach to your outlook and a wider understanding of a variety of creative and production roles so that you’ll be strongly placed to respond to professional opportunities.

During the course you’ll be encouraged to work collaboratively with students on other courses, giving you opportunities to see your work produced and form creative partnerships.

As part of the course, you’ll have the chance to take a work placement of either four or 30 weeks. The result will be an invaluable experience and a host of professional contacts, which will help you enter the workplace in a much stronger position. This is complemented by a graduate degree show held in London at the end of the course where you celebrate your achievements and can make further industry contacts.
