University of Westminster

Course Introduction

This three'year degree is one of the best'known film courses in the world, with an international reputation for its academic and practical teaching. Our students’ films are shown at festivals all over the world, and have won Student Academy Awards and a host of honours in both the UK and across the world. We aim to develop thinking filmmakers who have something to say to, and about, the world. A very high proportion of our students go on to work in film and television, and recent work from notable alumni includes We Need To Talk About Kevin (Seamus McGarvey, cinematographer), Senna and Amy (Asif Kapadia, director) and Skyfall (Neal Purvis, screenwriter, producer).

Course Modules

During your first year you will study core modules covering three key areas – an introduction to film and television practice, documentary cinema and television, and film theory and analysis: Hollywood and genre – and an option module on the art of cinema. In Year 2, the two core modules focus on drama production, and story, structure and style; you will also be able to choose two option modules from a range including contemporary British cinema and television, contemporary world cinema, aesthetics of television drama, and cinema, dream and fantasy. In your final year, there are four core modules: advanced screenwriting or documentary production, advanced production, professional practice, and your dissertation.
