What kind of student would enjoy this course?
This course is ideal for those interested in all aspects of film. Previous study of GCSE Media Studies is not essential but skills in subjects such as video, art, music, design and photography would be helpful in the practical assignments.
What skills will I learn?
Film Studies is both creative and academic. You will learn the process of designing for different media platforms, use industry-standard computer programmes to realise your ideas and, through your research and analysis of the media industry, you will develop a clear understanding of the concepts that underpin much of what we all consume daily – from TV to film.
What could I do at the end of my course?
The media industry is one of the largest employers in the country. You could take a degree in Film Studies or a vocational course, such as film making. The skills learnt would be useful in film-making, advertising, marketing, graphic and web design, or journalism.
