The BA (Hons) Film (top-up) curriculum offers you the freedom to explore your own area of interest within the broad context of Film. You will be given the opportunity to combine academic investigation with industrial practice needs to fully develop your understanding of your chosen niche. The investigation, critical decision making and research skills you will acquire are planned in keeping with the versatility of the demands of the industry.

It is intended that on completion, you should be fully equipped to meet the challenges and demands of the current employment market and have the necessary skills to meet a variety of current sector demands.

It is expected that, over the duration of your course, you will study with increasing levels of independence. This is to ensure that you are fulfilling your academic and creative personal potential, and also to prepare you for future employment.

You will inhabit a dynamic learning environment, encompassing a wide range of facilities and resources, including digital media suites, drawing studios, design studios and well equipped lecture theatres and seminar rooms.
