Course summary

During the degree students will have an unparalleled opportunity to collaborate with dedicated crafts people and makers from across the creative industries. You will be taught by a team of highly qualified professional practitioners and current industry figures including award winning directors, producers, designers, actors, writers, animators, editors and composers. With our digital technology facility students will be able to engage with state of the art spaces and equipment including a 300sqm Film Studio, a dedicated Green Screen Studio, professional standard postproduction facilities, creative labs, Mac and PC suites and Recording Studios. Our approach gives aspiring creative technologists the real world experiences and employability skills needed to develop their careers in a range of screen based creative industries. Students on the BSc Digital Film Technologies programme begin their course by being introduced and inducted on a wide range of creative apparatus. Ensuring students have an awareness of a range of hardware, software and the digital workflows all underpin the progress they will make through their specialist and hands on practical modules. Live briefs such as drama productions, multi-camera filming and post production projects allow for applied practice and development of team working skills required to progress through the course. Throughout the course students will engage with numerous drama, performance and voice related projects with fellow students, staff and professional associates. Alongside aspiring filmmakers, writers and animators, students will collaborate across the department to gain an exceptional understanding of production practices and technology application, enhancing an extended range of vital employability skills needed to build a successful career. Opportunities to study the history, theory and cultural relevance of screen based content gives students the chance to investigate a range of interests throughout their degree beyond applied practice. The department runs field trips to international film festivals, professional film shoots and industry conventions on a regular basis, and by working with professional associates and on staff projects students can develop early career profiles on IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base).

English language requirements

TestGradeAdditional details
IELTS (Academic)6
PTE Academic50

The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.

Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
