Please note the entry requirements listed below are for 2025 entry only.

Typical offer 2024

UCAS tariff points: 112-128

Level 3 qualifications (A-levels, BTEC Diploma, Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, Access Diploma, IB Diploma, etc.).

Additional requirements

Please submit either an edited three-minute video or 15-20 page portfolio and that shows us the four values of questioning, curiosity, technical ability, and enthusiasm.

Your edited three-minute video should be made up of one or more clips from film projects you have made or worked on. Upload the clip to YouTube, Vimeo or similar platform and provide a link to the uploaded clip (and password if applicable) in a PDF document. Please leave the original soundtrack on your clips, do not replace the audio with a music track. Underneath the link on the document, please list your role on each film (i.e. individually made, cinematographer, editor, etc).

If you don't have practical experience of filmmaking, you can submit a digital portfolio. The images you select should show an eye for composition and a sense of visual storytelling and how images relate to each other in an edited sequence. This could be in the form of a storyboard, a sequential mood board, or a collage that explains the sequencing of images and events, and how a story can unfold through image, composition, blocking, lighting and how objects/characters ‘read' in a scene. Grounding this in research – the kinds of books, films and other media that inspire you – is always helpful.

If you choose to make a portfolio, combining your work into a PDF is a good way of ensuring that your portfolio is easy to access and stays the way you want it to look. A project may be spread over several pages or take up just one. You can use other formats to show your work by including links in your PDF (such as online links to a website, Instagram, Flicker or Vimeo account). You just need to be very careful that your links work and that they can be opened on different types of devices. You will be sent guidance on how to upload your three-minute video or portfolio when you have applied to your course.

Your workload

A course is made up of modules, and each module is worth a number of credits. You must pass a given number of credits in order to achieve the award you registered on, for example 360 credits for a typical undergraduate course or 180 credits for a typical postgraduate course. The number of credits you need for your award is detailed in the programme specification which you can access from the link at the bottom of this page.

One credit equates to 10 hours of study. Therefore 120 credits across a year (typical for an undergraduate course) would equate to 1,200 notional hours. These hours are split into scheduled and guided. On this course, the percentage of that time that will be scheduled learning and teaching activities is shown below for each year of study. The remainder is made up of guided independent study.

  • Year 1: 24% scheduled learning and teaching
  • Year 2: 22% scheduled learning and teaching
  • Year 3: 18% scheduled learning and teaching

The exact balance between scheduled learning and teaching and guided independent study will be informed by the modules you take.

Your course will primarily be delivered in person. It may include delivery of some activities online, either in real time or recorded.

How you will be assessed

Types of assessment

  • Year 1: Coursework 100%
  • Year 2: Coursework 100%
  • Year 3: Coursework 100%
