Hiya, sorry for bothering you with another "What uni shall I choose?!"- post. After combing through numerous forums unsuccessfully, I am just desperately in search for some information which could help me to make a final decision on my university choice. Basically, I just got two offers for studying Film Producing at Royal Holloway and at Met Film School.Now the big question is: Which one to choose!?! Generally, the course at Met Film school sounds more exciting and practical, but on the other hand it's far more expensive. So I'm not sure if the course difference is worth the money. The decision is quite tough, so I am grateful for any help or further information. Do any of you study Producing at Holloway or Met Film School and give me some more information on one of these courses? Or does anyone know more about the career prospects or reputation in the industry of any of these two institutions?

Your help is very much appreciated. Cheers

Hello there,

I'm here to let you know some information about career prospects in the Media Arts department at Royal Holloway.

To start off with some basic stats, we are in the top three for career prospects among our main competitors and are in in the top 20% for graduate prospects in the UK (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014).

To give you some more interesting information, we have recently had some very exciting successes by our graduates and a lecturer from our MA Producing Film and TV. At the Cannes Film Festival this year, two of our graduates worked on the short film Rate Me, which won the Illy Award at the Festival's Director's Fortnight for Best Short Film. They were the film's line producer and production consultant.

Also, one of our regular lecturers on our MA Producing Film and TV programme, Ceci Dempsey, was a producer for Colin Farrell's upcoming film The Lobster, which just won the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival. Ceci is an example of one of our academic members of staff who are very active in the industry - very successfully - and can provide expertise, industry links and inspirational career prospects.

To find out more information about career prospects and our programmes, you can browse through our website:
https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/medi...reer/home.aspx

It lists examples of graduates who studied Media Arts at Holloway, including Example!

I hope that helps,

Emily

I would go with the met film school because they are a specialist university with industry links, though royal Holloway is a good choice too. you should find out what industry links each uni has and the location is also a factor, if it is closer to film studios then you are more likely to have regular work experience.

I desperately want to go to met film school but it's too expensive If you have the money- go! They probably have the best links with the industry and of course, are really specialist. Also, Royal Holloway isn't in a great location: it's not even London- it's the middle of nowhere in Surrey.
