i applied to both courses and i guess the most obvious difference is that the middlesex course is extremely practical whereas westminster is both practical and theory (i think 50/50)

I think i'm gonna go to middlesex too, i've got a conditional offer from them. I was just a bit concerned that they didn't call anyone for interview and just give people offers based on personal statement, without seeing their actual work.. just seems a bit odd and worrying. Feels like they'd just let anyone in, which makes me think its not a great course, idk tho, probs overthinking it

Hello, thank you for the reply! I have just been quite concerned that I was not called for interview and just given a conditional offer based on personal statement, without anyone seeing my work. Makes me think you just let anyone in and its not a great course...

Hi ellaelisabeth1, thanks for your message. We'd like to reassure you that our programme leaders are very thorough in assessing applications. They are looking at relevant grades and also each student's interests and passions shown in their personal statement to see if the course is right for them. Middlesex is ranked 1st in London and 3rd in the UK for Film production and Photography (2019 Guardian League Tables) and is very well regarded. If you want to check out some of our amazing current students work you can go to our course page (student work) and see the sort of thing you will be doing here https://www.mdx.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/film. We hope to see you in September!
