About Scriptwriting for Film and Television at Bournemouth University

Our highly focused Scriptwriting for Film & Television degree offers training in creating the very foundation of film and television; the scripts themselves.

The course teaches you how to produce high-quality scripts, as well as encouraging you to develop your creative voice and writing style, alongside studying various aspects of film, television and the media as a whole.

You'll be taught by highly-skilled academic staff and professional practitioners, alongside regular guest speakers from the industry, who will help you to discover the secrets of pitching and developing documents, so that when you graduate you'll know exactly how to get your scripts noticed, as well as giving you an overview of the film and TV production processes.

During the course you will work collaboratively with students on other courses, giving you opportunities to see your work made (short films, webisodes etc.) and form creative partnerships which can lead to career opportunities.

To compliment what you learn in the classroom, you’ll be required to execute a work placement of either four or 30 weeks, depending on the length of your degree. The result will be invaluable experience and a host of professional contacts, which will help you enter the workplace in a much stronger position.
