Study type Taught


The MA Directing programme is designed for you to develop the skills and understanding needed to work as a director in today’s multi-faceted screen industries. Today’s director must be knowledgeable about industry, entrepreneurial, multi-skilled, and able to bring a deep understanding of story and performance in different contexts. Through the programme, you will acquire advanced insight into the interpretation of scripts, visual storytelling, and working across a variety of screen platforms and industry contexts.

You will develop skills in directing actors and non-professional contributors. You will learn about the director’s role as a leader and collaborator, working to realise client briefs and audiences’ expectations. You will learn to recognise the importance of diversity and progressive working practices in your approaches to content making.

  • Practical: Through hands-on exercises, workshops, seminars, masterclasses, and screenings, students will gain the practical skills and knowledge required to work as a director.

  • Industry-facing: Work collaboratively with students on other MA pathways as a part of a creative crew to mirror industry practice. Experience what it takes to deliver a project, and develop communication, negotiation, and project management skills.

  • Real-life Experience: Learn the importance of working on a creative brief as a director while completing a project for an external company. Our students have previously worked with companies including Nespresso, Stonewall, Time out, DHL, HM Treasury, and Fender Guitars.

  • Portfolio: Students have the opportunity to undertake a number of directing exercises, including a short-form project for an external industry client, and a final project.
