The entry requirement for this course is a Bachelor (Honours) Degree at 2:2 or above in any discipline. Applicants are required to submit a portfolio alongside their application. You can find our portfolio guidance below.
Please make it clear in your application which of the five specialisms you are applying for: directing, producing, cinematography, editing or location sound recording and design. There are limited spaces for each pathway to ensure a balance of technical disciplines within the course.
Note on Portfolio
On your application form, please include links to your film portfolio.
We ask that applicants share a minimum of two projects that they feel best showcases their strengths and skills in their chosen specialism. Each project should be under 15 minutes in length and, as our MA in Film is a narrative drama course, scripted drama films should be a priority. As part of your portfolio, you should also include a written description of your role on each project.
All files must be clearly labelled with your name and we recommend checking that the links work on other devices. Please note that scripts and other production materials should not be submitted as part of your portfolio.
We do consider applications for producing without a portfolio if you have a relevant background in arts administration, business or finance. We will not consider any other applications without a portfolio.
