Entry Requirements

  • An undergraduate degree and basic media production skills are preferred. Highly motivated individuals already engaged in developing a portfolio of relevant experiences and activities (e.g. volunteer work, conservation experience, wildlife or travel filmmaking, writing, photography, adventure activity) will also be considered.
  • Applications from international students are actively encouraged.

In addition to the general UWE application, candidates should submit with their application:

  • A  programme idea for a one hour wildlife documentary (on a single side of A4)


The full master's course comprises 180 credits divided into three 60 credits stages: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, and Master's. Students work incrementally through the three stages and must pass all modules at each stage in order to progress to the next.

The course is practical and production-based. During the year, students will produce a series of projects.

  • Creating the Story - Explores the art and science of storytelling. Teaches you the writing skills to produce films that are both distinctive and commercial.
  • Mastering the Business - Gives a solid introduction to the business and production of wildlife films.
  • Preparing for Production - Guides you through the production process for your final film, exploring research and development, editorial specification and pitching.
  • Future Documentary - Explores how to produce wildlife stories for a range of new and emerging multi-media platforms.
  • Professional production - An extended 3-6 month production module, where you will undertake your own creative project and showcase your portfolio of skills.  This bespoke module will be largely self-directed, supported by tutorials and sessions with an industry mentor.
