I'm currently in year 11 but with the large break we have I've started to think more and more about Uni's and one path I'm looking at is going to a Uni for film and/or editing. There are quite a few Universities that offer film so I was wondering if anyone had a really good experience or knew of particularly good Unis.

I don't know loads about editing but Bristol is rated top for Film by the Guardian, a non-Russel group that was really good when I visited was UCA (University for the Creative Arts) although again I don't know much about editing. The Guardian does a ranking table of all universities for all courses which is really useful so i would recommend looking into that. Hope this helps

Look at film schools that are CILECT members. They’re internationally recognised for the practicality and industry standard techniques.

Iirr the universities with undergrad courses in the uk are:
Arts uni Bournemouth (Bournemouth film school)
Falmouth
Leeds Beckett (northern film school)
Edinburgh and Edinburgh Napier (Scottish screen academy)
UCA Farnham
UAL LCC
Westminster

Hi Fireyl,

Great to hear you are using this time to plan for your future!

University of the Arts London is a great option when it comes to Film/Editing, we are currently ranked 2nd in the World for Art and Design (QS Rankings) and are one of largest creative universities in the world too. We are made up of six colleges in Central London, your campus would be London College of Communication as suggested below (thanks PQ!).

London College of Communication has loads of facilities on sight and is also situated close to some of the biggest TV and Film employers in the country. I would also encourage you to take a look at the UAL Archives (also based at LCC), we were lucky to have been gifted the Stanley Kubrick Archive, you would love it!

I recommend looking at some of the following links below:
UAL LCC Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B39F...T&index=7&t=0s
Stanley Kubrick Archive - https://www.arts.ac.uk/students/libr...ubrick-archive

Good luck with your course search!

Many thanks,
Matthew

Thank you I'll look in more depth at Bristol

Thank you so much! I will definitely look more into the Archives in detail; I really like the idea of studying in London as well so will definitely look at this seriously.

Hey! From what I know, Westminster has the best/most reputable Film Course in London. Outside London it’s AUB.

You missed off Hertfordshire from that list. Why?

The post production tuition at Herts is amazing and led by one of the best tutors at the university. They've won RTS awards and have partnerships with two major post houses for employment. They even have a lab Walter Murch opened, for delivering editing classes.
