Connected Campus is our ground-breaking initiative forging closer links between TV and Film professionals, production companies, broadcasters and the students trying to break into this competitive industry.
By fostering stronger relationships between employers and educators, the aim is to ensure that students on a variety of vocational Film and TV-related courses are fully equipped for the demands of a contemporary, rapidly-changing industry – and that the region’s workforce is the most talented, versatile and best-prepared in the UK.
All students at partner institutions can access a range of boot camps, masterclasses and special events, including visits to current sets and studios, industry workshops, visiting speakers and reviews of project pitches.
The original version of Connected Campus, which incorporates ten Yorkshire universities, has been growing steadily since it was launched two years ago.
A sister version, specifically for colleges, was launched in January 2021 – encouraged and supported by the broadcasters based in the region, including Channel 4, the BBC and ITV.
