Curriculum

There are three strands to our three-year programme – film history, film theory and film practice. In your first year, that means you’ll make short documentary and fiction films, while learning how to analyse films and studying the history of Hollywood cinema.

In year two, you’ll explore screenwriting and you’ll also be encouraged to experiment – looking closely, for instance, at avant-garde cinema. You’ll have the chance to go on a highly sought-after work placement in a film production company, and you’ll make films for a particular client outside the University, such as a local charity.

In your third year, you’ll study different film genres and the history of cinemas from different parts of the world, including European, Asian and Bollywood cinema. At the end of the course you’ll have the chance to make a longer film for a prestigious screening of our students’ work at a London cinema.
