    I am an international student current studying psychology in kcl right now. But tbh i dont feel like i like this subject anymore and my grades werent that great due to these feeling. Based on those reason i want to reapply for either program as i had the intention to apply for those but give up as my friends all do science courses. Unfortunately, i have 0 experience about the practical part of these two courses. If I apply, the interview and profolios worrys me as i don't have any related experience or project to show. So what should i do with that? How is the acceptance rate of either course and how much can i benefit from study these two courses for future employment in uk as an foreigner?

    Thanks for anybody willing to help me in advance.

    PS: if i dont have chance make it into both course, do i get the chance to study contemporary media practice?

    Hi

    Entry onto both courses - TV and Film Production - is based on a portfolio of work. This could include film or video work, photographs, artwork, scripts and creative writing.

    If you don't have any previous experience or a portfolio you will need to study a Foundation Year in Film, TV or Media Production so you can prepare a portfolio.

    Best of luck!

    Hi,
    After read much more about these course admission I feel like I don't stand the chance to get into. But what about the contemporary media practice would I have a problem applying if I don't have portfolio?
    Thanks

    Hi there

    Yes you still need to produce a portfolio for the Contemporary Media Practice course. As mentioned before, you will need to spend time getting a portfolio together. Most students will study for 1-2 years on a Media/TV/Film production course before applying to university and they build their portfolio from there. Alternatively some students will be able to make a portfolio in their own time as they make films and videos as a hobby.

    Good luck!

    Uhh, that is a shame. I really want to study some media course. So with my condition, score Aab in Chinese,mathematics and sociology in my a level study and score 7.5 in IELTS with no band score no lower than 6. What media related course would u recommend me to apply? I still kind of worried about the foreigner employability in media industry in UK ?

    Thank u in advance

    Hi

    I've just spoken with the Admissions Team. They are willing to interview you for TV Production course without a portfolio. You'd need to submit an application to us online through UCAS. Once we receive your application you'll be invited to attend an interview. Come prepared to discuss why you want to study the course, your interests and motivation in the subject area.

    You can also apply for Digital Media Communications, Public Relations, Journalism and Radio Production without having a portfolio.
