Postgraduate Pathway in Film

This course will develop your knowledge of and understanding of a range of film making disciplines. On completion of the Masters course, students are expected to be ready to take up an entry level job in the industry, or, in the case of outstanding students, set themselves up as an independent practitioner as either a director, producer, cinematographer, editor or sound designer.
High achieving students on the programme who would like to continue and deepen their studies will have the opportunity to apply for the MFA Advanced Film Practice. This provides a further year of intense, project-based film-making.
