Student TV.

NUTV is NUSU Media’s high-action and fast-paced television branch. Founded in 2010, the youngest of the three branches has certainly taken leaps and bounds in progress, committing itself to produce both on-demand and live broadcasts throughout the academic year. NUTV aims to be a platform to allow as many students as possible, regardless of their academic or personal background, the chance to experience the world of TV production.

We produce content covering current affairs, entertainment, music, student talent and lifestyle, sports, and more! Have an idea for a brand new show? Come and make that show a reality, as we’re always looking for new show concepts! NUTV also aims to help bridge connections into the industry for anyone looking to pursue a media career. We are a NaSTA affiliated station, allowing us access to the workshops and industry trips the Association runs throughout the year, including the annual conference at Easter.

We also have local connections with the Royal Television Society and individuals who have worked with local and national TV broadcasting studios. Whether you want to present in front of the camera, direct and produce from behind the scenes, flex your editing muscles, or write and develop ideas, check out NUTV.
