University of East London

Course Introduction

Some courses teach you about film'making while others concentrate on the theory and history of film. At UEL, we’ll give you a thorough, expert grounding in both.

We combine theory and practice, teaching you not just how to make films and videos but throwing you into every aspect of the film world, from screenwriting to cinema history.

Each year, you’ll make your own films, from fiction to documentaries. And in your last year, your final piece of work will be screened at a special show at a London cinema, attended by film industry executives.

Throughout your course, you’ll get the opportunity to develop your production skills by studying modules focused on documentary, fiction, screenwriting and avant'garde filmmaking.

We’ll give you the skills to work in all film'related fields. Our graduates have gone into a variety of rewarding careers, from film production to festival administration to film journalism.

If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a BA, you have the option of taking an ‘extended’ version of this course.

You’ll begin with a foundation year that will prepare you for the BA course, giving you the academic and personal skills you need for successful degree'level study
