The School of Media and Communication is based in a specially refurbished historic building at the heart of the University of Leeds campus. All of our courses involve a significant amount of theoretical study and research but may have some practical elements depending on your course and module choices. You’ll have access to a purpose-built cinema, a digital media lab, radio and television studios, equipment loan service and creative media suites.

We have a 58-seat cinema equipped with Dolby Digital sound and high-definition projection facilities and projectors for 16mm and 35mm film.

You can work on your own projects in any of our 80 editing bays, equipped with Avid Media Composer editing software and Adobe Creative Cloud. We also have 4k colour grading facilities in our five edit pods using DaVinci Resolve Studio.

Our fully equipped TV studio has a large green screen area, lighting and photo-flash facilities. We have a track and dolly, sliders, Glidecam and various cranes, and you’ll have access to our photographic darkroom.

We run a loans service where you can borrow a range of HD digital camcorders, from 4.6k cinema-style cameras to UHD documentary-style cameras, and various Canon stills cameras as well as Fuji and Pentax medium digital format cameras, to help with your project work.
