Media LAB

The Manchester School of Art introduces a new and unique MA media programme - the Media LAB, with pathways in Photography, Filmmaking, Media Arts and Film & Media Studies. You will work on individual projects in your chosen field, while experimenting with a broader spectrum of screen media methodologies in interdisciplinary groups and in close collaboration with an extensive, regional network of cultural and media organisations.


This course is a 48 week full-time / 96 week part-time postgraduate course. Students meet for one full day per week whilst also working independently on projects and research groups. Representative Timetablepdf icon
