Course summary

This degree has been designed for students who want to explore unique perspectives on the world.

Film and TV is the perfect course for you if you have a strong interest in film, television and other small screen forms, both mainstream and alternative. You’ll learn about the film and television industries, as well as other factors that shape the movies and shows you see on screen. This course will build your understanding of how films and TV programmes work; how to make sense of them; and how they convey meaning. We stand out for the range of cultures our course covers, and for the opportunity to study international cinema in depth, with modules available throughout your degree. Philosophy aims to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to ultimate questions. This course differs from the typical philosophy courses on offer at most other universities as it is not a course in the history of ideas. The course is organised around some of the philosophical problems faced by today's decision-makers in their professional lives. In general, this course examines the interface between philosophical ideas and everyday life, and has been designed in order to help you think more clearly and more critically about the world in which you live. Philosophy will allow you to question the world in a critical way to develop excellent written and oral communication which is needed to recognise global trends and to articulate debates. Film & TV will allow you to study international cinema in depth and you'll gain a critical awareness of how film and TV programmes are constructed and how they convey meaning. You'll develop vital transferable skills such as critical thinking, interpersonal skills, be able to work effectively both independently and within a team. 92% of our joint honours Film & TV undergraduates are in work or further study within just six months of finishing their degree (DLHE 2016/17).

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university. We also consider equivalent qualifications and combinations. Please contact Nottingham Trent University Admissions team for further information.
