    What is your experience with film making? Do you have a demo reel or portfolio and experience? Most of these courses require a portfolio and experience working in the industry to apply.

    I personally would not recommend studying documentary filmmaking as a MA. I work in the industry myself and can say filmmaking is a very hard industry to break into. Almost impossible. And a Masters degree will not help you. 99% of people who do these courses are wasting their money on a piece of paper and a 'dream.'

    I know people with degrees, masters, even someone with a PHD in filmmaking who cant get work, even in London. My friends with filmmaking MAs are unemployed.

    So I wouldn't recommend any of those courses. Don't waste your money.
