Edinburgh Napier University has teamed up with RSPB Scotland to create opportunities for students from our undergraduate Television and Film courses. The partnership gives students the chance to work on creative projects that highlight the work of RSPB Scotland and help achieve its conservation goals.
The partnership, which began in 2017, allows students to create short films about charity’s work protecting and enhancing Scotland’s precious wildlife and habitats. Some of the footage shot by students was even broadcast on BBC 2's Springwatch.
In future, placement opportunities with RSPB Scotland will also be open to undergraduate Journalism students.
What our partners say:
“RSPB Scotland has been working with talented and hard-working students from Edinburgh Napier Film and Television undergraduate courses to deliver quality short-form films across our work portfolio. They have produced excellent assets that have been invaluable in helping advance our objectives and inspiring others to support the cause of conserving, protecting and enhancing Scotland’s precious natural world.
“The students also get to develop their skills and add to their show reel, helping them along the career path when they look for work in the industry. We look forward to working with many more of them in the coming years.”
James Reynolds, Head of Communications and Marketing, RSPB Scotland.
What our students say:
“I would recommend this opportunity to everyone! There is so much scope to learn and develop your skills in a very unique field of film-making while getting to travel and explore the highlands.
“This experience was one of my best experiences at university. It explores every avenue of film-making and working with RSPB Scotland gives you the freedom to learn and progress.”
