Queen Mary University of London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Study the intersecting worlds of film and literature in London, the cultural capital and heart of the UK film industry.
English and Film Studies demands creative, original thought. Literature and film ask us to question how class, race, ethnicity and sexuality are represented on the page and screen, and the impact of evolving language and technologies.
Our joint degree programme introduces you to the history, theory and practice of cinema, and covers a wide range of literary texts and theories of reading. We teach you to apply critical theory and close textual and visual analysis to the realms of film and literature, and explore the connections between cinematic works and literary texts from many different regions and historical periods.
Options in the second and final years will allow you to concentrate on the subject areas that interest you most, from Arthurian literature to contemporary Hollywood cinema

Queen Mary University of London welcomes applications from students currently studying Level 3 BTEC qualifications and will consider you for entry to the majority of our undergraduate courses. The typical entry requirements will vary according to the course you are applying for.
Some of our courses require specific subject knowledge which you may not be able to cover as part of a Level 3 BTEC qualification and we may therefore require additional Level 3 qualifications to ensure that you are suitably prepared for relevant courses. A small number of our courses do not accept BTEC qualifications for entry, either as a standalone qualification, or in combination with other qualifications at Level 3.
Information on our typical entry requirements and guidance for applying can be found at http://www.qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/entry/btec/
