    Hello, I was wanting to get opinions on which is the best university to study a film/media production degree. I have narrowed down my options to the places where I would feel comfortable moving to, some I have visited on open days, others I am still waiting to see. I would just like your opinions on this, and if you know how respectable the universities/courses are. If you have heard of positive or negative experiences, and which has the best facilities (cameras studies etc..) and teachers. My university choices so far are as followed:
    Leeds Trinity University - For this university, I am interested in two degrees, Film Degree, and their English & Media degree.
    Northumbria - Film & TV Production
    Teeside - Film & TV Production
    Cumbria - Film & Television
    Newcastle - Film and media/film practices
    York - Film and Tv Production
    Thanks

    Currently looking at doing film, TV or media production at Leeds, Coventry, York or Salford. I heard Bournemouth is good for that as well, but at the moment I feel like it's too far away.

    Coventry and Salford have been my main choices from the start but I keep changing my mind about the unis haha.

    Hi! I am an international student applying to Film Production BA in the UK.
    I have narrowed down to 4 courses, but cannot decide my 5th course.

    Courses I am thinking as my 5th option are...
    - University of York / Film an Television BSc ( York seems to be a beautiful city haven't heard any negatives on this course. But my concern is it's BSc and might be lacking in creative sides of film production. And it's a balance of Film and Television while I want to focus only on film)
    - University of Hertfordshire and University of Gloucestershire ( the content of the courses look good but the location is pretty bad)
    - Royal Holloway, University of Greenwich, and Ravensbourne ( they are all in London but not sure about the quality)

    I feel the courses I chose are all pretty hard to get in so I am wondering whether I should choose one with a less competition.

    Here are the courses I have already made my mind to apply
    1. University of Westminster / Film BA (heard it's the best film course in the UK and it's located in Londen = perfect condition for me)
    2. University of Middlesex / Film BA ( I heard many positives on this course and located in London)
    3. Arts University Bournemouth / Film Production BA (Also it's the best film course in the UK although it is far from London)
    4. Norwich University of Art / FIlm And Moving Image Production BA (it's in the middle of nowhere in the UK but the city of Norwich is very beautiful and the uni is located in the center which is a big positive)

    I basically chose courses with a good location (close to London, or other big cities like Bournemouth and Norwich), a well-structured module(focused on Film Production, not Television), and a high reputation in the industry. The location is the most important factor for me since I am planning to do placements while studying, so the university located near London is appealing to me.

    Anyone having a similar situation? Or anyone who graduated from the courses I listed above?
    It would be very nice to hear your advice on my options.
