This cohort have shown they have the skills, knowledge and drive to start careers in a booming UK industry. Demonstrating effective collaboration, creative thinking and technical craft skills, our graduates work across a diverse range of specialisms - from screenwriting and production to sound and cinematography.

Skills and

Every student worked in multiple roles across multiple productions, including areas that are currently 'hard to recruit' for in our industry such as production assistant, assistant director and art department assistant. This experience ensures NUA graduates are ready to fill the skills shortages in our industries.

For GradFest22, our graduating cohort worked with the course team to curate, promote and manage a three-day film festival, screening their short film work and specialist show-reels to a public audience in NUA's Production Theatre. They worked in small teams to curate and run each screening and Q&A.
