Film Making MA: Entry requirements

What you need to apply for this course

We usually expect applicants to have:

  • a second class degree or above in a humanities subject (film, media studies, languages, history, English etc) or in any other subject felt to relate to the art and craft of film making;
  • a passion for film making; and
  • a distinct and individual voice.

We also carefully consider non-standard entrants with relevant personal and work experience who can demonstrate the interest, commitment and ability required to make their own films.

Please note that students will also be required to purchase their own external hard drive (with a capacity greater than 250 GB) to store all of their film projects.

Interviews

We normally invite applicants for an interview with the course director or another senior member of the teaching team. International students based overseas can arrange for an interview by email or telephone.

Prior learning – AP(E)L

Applicants with prior qualifications and learning may be exempt from appropriate parts of a course in accordance with the University's policy for the assessment of prior learning and prior experiential learning. Contact the faculty office for further information.

English language requirements

All non-UK applicants must meet our English language requirement, which is Academic IELTS of 6.5 overall, with no element below 5.5. Make sure you read our full guidance about English language requirements, which includes details of other qualifications we consider.

Applicants who do not meet the English language requirements could be eligible to join our pre-sessional English language course.
