You are taught through a combination of lectures and seminars. Some modules will have time dedicated to screening films and others will ensure that the films are made available before the class.
In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least 4 occasions in the first year and three occasions in each of the other years of a course.
You have an opportunity to study film at a high level, to interrogate the social and cultural positioning of cinema, and to learn about the technical aspects of filmmaking such as editing, sound, and narrative construction. Alongside lectures, seminar tasks may include activities such as 20 minute filmmaking, the writing of film dialogue, and film reviewing.
You will have the opportunity to study contemporary and historical film texts. In some modules, there will also be the opportunity to engage with industry professionals and external speakers who will bring 'real world' experience to the study of cinema.
In the second year there is the opportunity for students to organise their own film festival and, in the third year, to develop their skills as film reviewers.
