    Depends what they were doing after. If they wanted to go into film journalism, become a critic I think it is a sensible degree. If they wanted to work in film production I would think it was silly not do a more pratical course. If they did anything not film related then it is still valuable as it shows research/ essay skills.

    it's the student who pays the fees, not the taxpayer.

    So who gives the subsidised loan and tops the fees up to the full cost of a degree?

    That they were interested in film and were creative to some degree. That they want a career in film/arts/creative field.

    I know somebody who studied a degree similar to this and runs a successful media start up company in Dublin with some other business partners.

    No the government pays the tuition fees.

    the "student" pays after they are earning 21k+, and most loans dont even get fully repaid as it is written off in 30 years

    and who will have to pay a 9,000 per annum fee from this year on?

    the taxpayer doesnt pay for university degrees, only for the provision of primary and secondary education.

    It's unlikely that particular course would/could/should attract the full £9k fee.

    I'll try again. Who do you think provides the subsidised loan? Who tops up the fees to pay for the full cost of the degree?

    That if they don't become George Lucas or Barry Norman then they are chancers who fancied being a bit pretentious. Every time I watch a film I'm studying it in some respect - I can usually pick up the themes to it like how Star Wars was a 'western in space'.
    I don't need to spend 3 years and a load of money just to be taught by people who will probably know less than I do about the matter.

    For £9000 you might as well fly to California and pay Steven Speilberg a small fee to give you an afternoon crash course in film. It'll probably be more insightful.

    I dont think you understand how the tuition fees/loan system works in the UK.
