    So I've got offers from Bournemouth to do an MA in Directing Digital Film and TV, and an offer from Birmingham to do an MA in Film and TV: Research and Production. And I'm torn between the two.

    I think Bournemouth university's media school has a better reputation than Birminghams, but then when I check the league table on the complete university guide it says Birmingham is much higher? But I can only check for Drama, Dance & Cinematics, which is a very vague category and I doubt reflects the actual standings for film and tv courses. The Bmouth course sounds better too, with a greater focus on creative film making, whereas Bham is focused on documentary film making. Although it does have a creative filmmaking module aswell.

    Bmouth is 1 year though, and Bham is 2 year part time. I would prefer the part time because I could more easily pay for it, and have more time with access to the cameras. I was undergrad at Bham aswell and I'll get the fees cheaper because of it.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a league table that might be more accurate, or whats the general consensus with these universities for filmmaking? I know the arts university in Bmouth has a much better reputation than the regular university, but its still quite high up there for media no? Gah, I just dont know! Any assistance would be great!
