BA Film degree is one of the best-known film courses in the world, with an international reputation for its academic and practical teaching. Our students’ films are shown at festivals globally and have won a host of honours and awards, including Royal Television Society Awards, a Student Academy Award and a Grierson Best Student Documentary Award.
We operate from a purpose-built studio facility in Harrow, with two large film and television studios, a set construction workshop, a 3D workshop, and post-production facilities. The environment is both scholarly and creative, with all students studying film history, criticism and aesthetics alongside their practical work. We aim to develop thinking filmmakers who have something to say to, and about, the world.
Through an excellent network of industry contacts, some of whom teach on the course, and including many alumni of the course, students have opportunities for part-time work, placements and work-related learning activities. The course receives substantial support from the industry and our students gain experience of working with professional actors, negotiating with facilities houses, equipment hire companies and local authorities.
