Students are able to choose an industry attachment or a substantial research document that prepares the student for a career within the entertainment industry. Students who choose an attachment will be expected to find a screenwriting relevant attachment for a period of 2 - 4 weeks. This will be off-campus depending on the location of the attachment. The attachment exercise will be completed with the delivery of a report by the student. The research document, if chosen, will be of substantial weight. Students will be required to nominate an area of research relevant to screenwriting and to research and write a paper interrogating their area of enquiry. Either choice will require students to demonstrate a high degree of self-motivation.
