Staff Profile

Nick Stubbs

I have a broad industry background with many years experience across a range of TV production. I began my career in 1993 working as a Studio Manager for a Soho-based commercials production company, Smith Jones Brown & Cassie (set up by Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones) running the in-house production studio. I then went on to work for their sister company TalkBack Productions on a range of TV comedy, Entertainment and Drama programmes, including: The Day Today, They Think Its All Over, Paris, and Milner. I left to study at the Royal College of Art Film & TV Production MA. After graduation I worked as a freelance Producer and Director making documentaries and dramas with a variety of companies including BBC and Skreba Productions, all of which have been broadcast and distributed internationally, theatrically, on TV or at festivals. I have taught undergraduate and post graduate TV & Film production across the UK and joined the University of Gloucestershire in September 2014.

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
