Our Contemporary Media Practice courses give you the opportunity to discover more about this exciting and growing industry. You will immerse yourself in the world of corporate and narrative film, harnessing key skills that the industry are demanding right now in the areas of editing, storytelling, special effects, directing and cinematography. You will learn about how, why and for whom media content is produced and will be enthused by seeing an initial creative idea develop and grow.
To support you in your ambitions we have extensive industry-level facilities and equipment. We have worked closely with industry specialists to design a course that fully prepares our undergraduates for the current and future media landscape. We have created an exciting package that includes regular industry speakers and clients to foster a real working environment. You will be expected to take advantage of local, national and international visits to see best practice in the areas of film festivals, corporate film and exhibitions in order to ignite your creative talent.
These courses are designed to set high standards for professional achievement in specific media industry roles and prepare you for the challenge and opportunity of a multi-skilled portfolio career. As such, you will be expected to enter your work into competitions and exhibitions.
This is an exciting time for the media industry and an exciting time to be part of a creative, dynamic and growing industry.

“The media industry is fast moving and dynamic so we know that any experience you can get while learning your craft only helps with your future career. The Hugh Baird University Centre is committed to providing an opportunity within the city for up and coming practitioners to work within industry and with local companies. That’s why we were keen to offer an undergraduate work placement with us this year and it’s worked out really well.”
Anthony Gilboy, Contemporary Media Practice - Foundation Degree (FdA)
"After this course, I want to go on to do the top up year here to achieve my BA (Hons) in Contemporary Media Practice. Then I plan on getting my PGCE because I would like to teach. The support services available in the University Centre are really helpful, especially the drop in centre where you can ask the Study Skills team to look over essays before the submission date."
