    Have just applied for a MA in Film & Visual Studies at QUB

    Quick recap - I moved to London to do an Fda degree in Fashion Styling & Photo at LCF (two year degree, have the certificate, all good grades) and then progressed on to the BA top up year - I have proof of completing two units but stupidly didn't submit my final major unit - I came under financial difficulty and had been working freelance, the work then progressed into a full time opportunity at a magazine and I happily accepted the job without a second thought

    Fast forward a year - my work, (mostly film based), has included working on/directing/styling etc numerous music videos, fashion film, tv adverts etc - I've been screened at highly prestigious global festivals, on some major websites, in museums etc...

    I've moved home and applied for this Masters in the hope that academic experience + professional experience could lead onto an interview / portfolio review... I really loved the academic side of uni and would love to gain this degree

    Any advice / opinions?
