    Isn't Bournemouth meant to be good for this type of stuff?
    Very good indeed, i've just started the tv prod course in september and it's fantastic, in 2nd term and it's getting better. Either course you choose, if another group need help then try to, if it's extras/actors or sound stuff.

    Hey there!

    I am interested in the same course: Film and television production and unfortunately only few universitys offer the course.

    I chose York St John for the course as it is the only university that offers two weeks work exsperiene, 10 week interniship and a chance to study abroad during the course.

    I suggest picking York St John as it offers work expserience and it will give you an edge over other aplicant to a job within the industry because you would have quite a lot of exsperience and others would have little or none at all exsept perhaps a degree in teh course.

    Not York St. John. After months of me waiting to get a reply I emailed them asking what was taking so long (fairly politely) only to be told that they had received too many applications and were going to offer me a different course! They gave my ICT (Web development) with English Language ...

    And I was only interviewed by Gloucestershire University (which I absolutely loved) and did not require a portfolio, showreel or work experience. Of course, it's always better to have those things. I didn't even do a media-based A level and I got an offer of 260 UCAS points, which is fairly good.

    Wtf, you applied for television production and they offered you... ICT with English? Thats weiiiird. You'd think they'd offer you film studies or media studies or something like that instead :tongue:

    I haven't a clue about reputation for english universities when i went to the open day it seemed like a pretty good place, but thames valley has three campus's it could be another one that is bringing the other campus's down

    well i changed my choice of firm to the university of creative arts, which has a dedicated facitliy to film production/among other creative subjects which is amazing, it is also meant to have a great rep like one of the best for filming from what i've puck up from other threads, websites, and people.

    though i heard westminster wasn't the best, it offers top facilities but i hear the lecturers aren't great, also new bucks excepted me in straight away no interview nothing, plus i heard the facilities weren't great

    cheers for the previous advice on thames valley i'd have made an awful mistake choosing a not so good uni over one of the best for film

    Thames is awful.

    Westminster or the London College of Communications are better in the London Area.

    im actually going to university of creative arts farnham its also one of the best in the country for media and there film course is one to rival bournmouth, the facilities are execellent as well are the lectures as from my experience when i had the last interview and missed the tour he spent his own time showing me around the grounds which i thought was execellent, the massive sets looked class, as well did the editing suites, i applied for bucks as well but i heard an awful lot of bad rumours, didn't get into bournmouth but was just as happy as i would have been getting into uca, i definitly recommend looking into

    Bournemouth is REALLY hard to get into, you HAVE to know your stuff or they won't even consider you. Southampton Solent Uni is the Skillset Academy for the South East and I know they have contracts/contacts with industry, cos I asked.

    If you want emphasis on film, then i'd recommend:

    London College of Communication, Film and Video
    http://www.lcc.arts.ac.uk/courses/un...and_video.htm#

    Westminster Film School, Film and TV Production
