BT will offer a scholarship to support a student through the Production Technology MA, a two year course which equips students with the skills required in all aspects of production technology in live and recorded environments.
This scholarship will aim to help combat the current skills deficit in the sector. After completing the masters, graduates will be invited to apply for a job at BT.
