Film Studies (with Foundation Year) at University of Hull - UCAS

Course summary

You could hardly choose a better place to study film. As the region grows in popularity as a film location, so do opportunities to get real-world experience in the industry. Some work experience opportunities might arise through our involvement with Screen Yorkshire's Connected Campus: a scheme which can help you prepare for life in the film and TV industry through masterclasses, workshops and visiting speakers. You'll benefit from brand-new facilities – like the refurbished Middleton Hall, where we've invested £9.5 million to create a superb venue featuring a surround-sound cinema and an industry-standard filming and editing suite. You’ll be taught by enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff who are film fans as much they are academics. They include Dr Amy Davis, an internationally respected Disney scholar, as well as experts in horror, East Asian cinema and TV drama. The foundation year is ideal to boost your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements. Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it. What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership. We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else. Find out more at hull.ac.uk/teamgb
