    I live in the north west side of the Uk, and would like some ideas or advice on possible film universities. I have looked at the top rated ones but am really confused to which ones. Don’t need to decide for ages so can visit some before hand.

    Are you looking for practical or theory focused courses? Do you want to make film/tv or study it?

    In that case a reasonable starting point would be
    - CILECT members http://www.cilect.org/profiles/membe...4#.WfH65VtSzs0 - cilect is the international film industry body....but those will normally be film specialist courses not film and tv
    - Creative Skillset Film courses http://creativeskillset.org/search/3...=Undergraduate (Creative skillset is the UK industry body - so those courses have sufficient involvement from the industry in the design and delivery of the course)
    - Creative Skillset TV production courses http://creativeskillset.org/search/3...=Undergraduate

    Given your location you should also definitely make sure to visit Salford - they're not accredited IIRR but because of their location in MediaCity they're a good benchmark to compare against

    Hey.

    How important would it be to attend an industry accredited film university careerwise? For example, would it be better to prioritize, say, Westminster over Salford since it's a CILECT member?

    Membership/accreditation just means that someone has checked whether the course includes what the industry expects. Other courses can and will provide the same resources/industry active teaching staff/industry approved content. But without accreditation it’s up to applicants to ask about those things
