What will I learn?


Film and television production are significant growing and developing industries in China with an increased emphasis on international co-production and collaboration. The BA Film and Television Production programme aims to equip students with the skills, knowledge and understanding of film and television production, and a critical and theoretical grounding in film, media and communication studies contexts.

With the curriculum delivered in English and drawing on XJTLU’s international education model, graduates will be well equipped in both language, subject-specific skills and critical abilities to go onto work in local, national and international media industries or to progress on to further specialist study.


The programme benefits from facilities running industry-standard software and hardware platforms. You will work with dedicated research-active international staff with practical experience in digital media arts (film makers, directors and producers, and academics) and in communication and media teaching. The programme will be housed in state-of-the art facilities in the brand new dedicated School of Film and TV Arts building currently under construction. These facilities will feature film and television studios, digital media laboratories, post-production facilities and a viewing theatre.

The programme is accredited by the Chinese Ministry of Education and the University of Liverpool.


BA Film and Television Production graduates pursue professional careers in the film, television, media and creative industries, communications, PR and advertising, national and international broadcast and film production companies, journalism, and internet and online communications.
