About

This Film Studies with Audio-Visual from University of Birmingham gives you the opportunity to film and edit an hour-long documentary film as part of your research, accompanied by a 30,000 word written defence.  

Overview

Nominally, the audio-visual component of the PhD is a documentary film, although the department is open to applications that may also incorporate elements of drama, avant-garde or essayistic filmmaking. Indeed, the term ‘documentary’ is already an extremely broad one which encompasses many different modes of engagement and representation. We would therefore encourage applicants to consider the style and structure of their film in detail when compiling their application, and also to consider why a film is the most appropriate method for pursuing their research.

The Film Studies with Audio-Visual from University of Birmingham enables you to make an original contribution to the disciplines of film and television studies, preparing you for prospective careers in the media industries, academia and related disciplines.

You will work with supervisors and technicians to develop this practice-based project, using our editing suites and filming equipment.

The Department brings together the expertise of our Film Studies and Creative Writing staff, opening up exciting new opportunities for postgraduates to benefit from synergies between the two fields.

Career

You will have opportunities to: meet employers face-to-face at on-campus recruitment fairs; attend employer presentations and skills workshops; receive individual guidance on your job applications, writing your CV and improving your interview technique; and access to comprehensive listings of hundreds of graduate jobs and work experience opportunities.
