Quick question which I hope people will answer ---> How practical is the course? I thought it was very practical but someone from there told me it wasn't as practical as he thought

Thanks

It's a practical course but it's also a degree - that means there will always be an element of theory and reflection required in assessed work (as well as just production).
Have you looked at the detailed information on the course webpages? https://aub.ac.uk/courses/ba/ba-film...ourse-journey/

Yes, I have and thought it was extremely but someone told me it wasn't really. This is why I want to have other people's opinions on how practical it is

You could always try contacting the SU or the BFS social media accounts to find out if they can put you in touch with current students. There aren't any current AUB film students on TSR as far as I know

Why do you think you got rejected?
And I'm assuming film studies is not practical at all, right? Or a little bit

Hey, I'm currently a first year student on the Film course at AUB and I highly recomend it, we made 3 films in the first semester, any more and it would have been way too much lmao. This semester is focusing on screenwriting and learning about the different specialisms, so no overly practical stuff, but our work is leading to a short film the we are making after easter with first year acting students so thats pretty major. I'd say the course can be as practical as you want it to be, theres always opportunies to do personal projects, and one of our lecturers also occasionally runs weekend film challanges, where you have to make a film in 48 hours, which is loads of fun. If you have any more questions about the course or life in Bournemouth I'm happy to answer

Mate, you are my hero !!! Thank you so much for your reply, it is really tough to find AUB students on TSR.
Should I ask my questions here or in private message?
Thank you for existing !!! (I might be overly dramatic...)

Hello Kaibo,
Does the uni offer any work placements or do the students find work themselves in their free time? Because I have read its more important than the degree itself and AUB has not mentioned anything on their web about careers and employability of the students after graduation. Do you now anything?

I don't think the uni offers work placements per say, I know there's a website they post job offers from companies that contact them, the lecturers very much encourage us to go and get work in our spare time, over summer, rather than doing work experience during course time. The film course mimics as much as possible how sets are like 'in the real world' so you gain a lot of skills and knowledge through the course that other courses may not get without work experience.
