Experimental Film MA: Entry requirements

What you need to apply for this course

Here you'll find the entry requirements for this course. Please read them carefully as they are very important for your application.

Participants are admitted through formal University application and contact with the director of studies.

Each applicant is expected to provide a showreel or portfolio and statement, developing their reasons for applying to the programme. They are subsequently invited to visit the campus for an informal meeting, or can provide and answer any supplementary questions relative to their application. Please note that there is no formal interview for this course.

The entry decision is made through portfolio (showreel) and personal statement.

Participants should normally hold a BA(Hons) degree (or its equivalent) in a related or appropriate subject. Each application is considered on its own merits and therefore previous experience and qualifications may be taken into account.

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.

Applicants from a recognised majority English speaking countries (MESCs) do not need to meet these requirements.

Application deadlines

We strongly suggest that applicants who require a visa to study in the UK ensure that their application and supporting documentation reach us by the first week of August 2019, although we may still accept applications after this date.

All other applicants should ideally apply before the first week of September 2019, although we may still accept applications after this date.

Information required to support your application

  • Copies of transcripts and certificates which confirm qualifications obtained and pending with the complete breakdown of all subjects studied and marks obtained. These should clearly show the qualification awarded and the final overall grade/mark. If they are not in English, we will also require copies translated into English by an authorised translator.
  • A personal statement of at least 500 words which should outline your reasons for applying for the course.

Please note that the processing of your application will be delayed if the above documents are not supplied and if we do not receive these documents in good time your application may be withdrawn.

If you have problems uploading your supporting documentation

If you cannot upload your supporting documentation with your application, please scan and email to KSAAdmissions@Kingston.ac.uk.

Please ensure that you quote your name, Kingston ID and course applied for in all correspondence with Kingston University.

Information required to confirm your place

We will also require the following pieces of information to allow us to confirm your place on the course. These can be forwarded to us after you have submitted your application:

  • If English is not your first language we will require proof of your proficiency, which will generally be either an IELTS or TOEFL test certificate. If you do not hold a formal English language qualification, please indicate how you have acquired your proficiency in written and spoken English. See postgraduate English language requirements.

These can be scanned and attached to the online application, or alternatively you can email your referees' details to ksaadmissionsenquiries@kingston.ac.uk and we will send them a reference form to complete and return.
