Leeds Beckett or Wiltshire?

    Hello everybody.
    I'm a Vietnamese person living in Oslo. I like to study filmmaking (not film studies) and right now am wavering between these 2 options:
    - BA (Hons) Filmmaking at Leeds Beckett University
    - BA (Hons) Film Production and Cinematography at Wiltshire College Salisbury (part of Bournemouth University)
    Which one should I choose?

    Some other information:
    - I like a practical programme, not just theory.
    - I like large, exciting cities with rich cultural life. Salisbury is smaller but closer to London.
    - The Northern Film School of Leeds Beckett is the only film school that has JAMES accreditation.

    I can't decide. What do you think?
    Thank you all in advance.

    Hi ElyssaOzog, I just thought I'd give you a few bits of information about Leeds Beckett in case you haven't already found them. Our Filmmaking course is 70-80% practical and you'll be able to go on job placements as part of your studies. If you want more information on the kinds of things you'll be doing I can put you in touch with a member of the Film School.

    As for the city, Leeds is one of the biggest (we're the third largest, in fact) and most vibrant cities in the UK. The city is also a great hub for media and film and is really student-friendly. What's more, if you're interested in travelling to London, the train journey from Leeds to Kings Cross in London is two hours and thirty minutes, which is very similar to how long it takes from Salisbury.

    I hope that helps,
