    Is anyone on this course/looking to study this? It looks rather theory heavy which isn't really a huge issue but I would eventually like to get into a more practical film career. Is there any practical work? What is the workload like?

    The course structure should give you an idea of the balance between theory and practical work. Ask the uni if they can put you in touch with current students and visit if you can.

    I'm applying this year for 2017 entry. It definitely seems more theory based, especially in comparison the other unis I've looked at. If you can make it to the open days I'd recommend going up and talking to the lecturers and students there, I went to one last year and one a couple days ago. The next one is October 22nd I think? They have stalls in the main hall throughout the day and if you go the film stand they'll tell you everything about the course and answer any questions you have, plus there's the talk later on in the day which details the course in full.

    It's definitely theory based. I'm at Glasgow Uni and I know a lot of people studying Film and TV and from what I've heard it involves watching a movie and analysing it. In first year anyway you don't do any practical work, not sure about later on.

    I'm applying for film at Glasgow in 2017! Most courses that say "film and media" and the like are theory based, if you're looking for practical degrees I'd look into film directing, or film production degrees. But obviously you can also take a theory based course and go into film afterwards, mostly by internships etc. Lots of people in film also take photography courses, it really depends on what you're planning to work with...
