    Hi!
    I am applying to Falmouth for next year (2017/18) and am hugely interested in the Ba Film course AND the BA Television course. I have experience in both and have a passion for both so I cant decide. The film course looks more theory which makes me what to choose the Television one. Any current students can help me out? Let me know what its like? Im also really into editing, is there much of that on either course?

    Thanks x

    i shall find out when i go there in september.. i personally picked the film bc i liked that it was more theory so i wouldnt always be doing practical stuff in the filming rooms etc so i could study on my own in my own time aswell, but hey it depends what you prefer because both courses will help you get into the industry

    I doubt it is essential, obviously a macbook is one of the best but on the open day they had a room full of iMacs, two per person for editing etc so I highly doubt it will matter if you do or not.

    But Im just guessing here. 😊

    hey so i initally picked film, i thought it would suit me more...but i was wrong. i do not have extensive knowledge about films and directors, but i thought it would be okay seeing as i could learn...i was wrong. i found it extremely difficult to understand anything the lecturers were talking about, it was like trying to learn chinese or something, so i switched, it was very easy and the staff were really nice about it, i switched to television, which is probably better, i got to travel to other coastal areas and film short clips in a documentary style etc, im very much more suited to television, however me personally im having a very hard time making friends..im quite different and people dont seem to gel well with me on the course. saying all that, this all depends on you and who you are, do you watch television and series more or films, making friends will probably be easy for you so dont worry about that, i hope u applied for both, sorry im very late, i think the ucas deadline is gone i didnt get notifications from student room!!
