Brunel University London

Course Introduction

We're proud of the way our course directly links students to cutting edge research. You'll be taught by respected names who provoke excitement and interest both when they publish and as they teach. Film and Television students at Brunel are encouraged to be hands'on. After the first year up to 40 per cent of your module choices can be practical so you are able take the theory you have learned and apply it to your own work. You're then eligible to enter our annual on'campus student film festival which shows the best student films and awarding Best Fiction, Best Non'Fiction and Best Overall Film prizes. In Year 3 your placement will give you vital direct experience of working in the areas that interest you most. And as we're so close to central London you'll be able to take advantage of screenings at the BFI, the ICA and dozens of other great cinemas across the capital.
