I am stuck between firming either Newcastle (Film Practises) or Queen Mary's (film studies) Both unis have great film courses however I am confused which Uni to choose from.
To give a rough idea of my current mindset- Let me state the pros for both unis
Located in London which is heart of the film hub.
Has a respected film course (4th on league table for film studies)
Is more theory based
Means I can work on projects at home and submit them to film festivals such as BFI.
Has a practical course which I love, Whereas Queen Mary's course is more theory based.
Means i'll be able to live on campus whereas if I go Queen Mary's Ill have to stay at home.
Also has a respected film course (11th on league table)
Cons- Queen Marys
I have to stay home which takes away the uni experince
Course is more theory based
Apparently the uni is overrated
Far away from home (I live in London)
Basically- I really want a job within the film industry and would want to put me in a place where I have the best possible chance. Although i love Newcastle and not so much Queen Mary's, I wonder whether staying In London where I can gain connections would put me in a better place of getting into the industry./
Over the Easter break
