You haven’t mentioned many CILECT courses. Why not? Why have you not looked at those with awards - Hertfordshire’s MA won a Student Academy Award in 2019 and is CILECT.

Hi Arjun.Anil,
We have a pretty cool film production course here at the University of Salford and it is based at our MediaCity campus which means you are right next door to the BBC and ITV, etc. All of our equipment is industry standard and it is a very practical course so you get to grips with all the equipment very quickly.

Unfortunately I do Physiotherapy here at Salford so can not give you a lot of information about the course but if you click here you can talk to a current student who is doing the same course as you are interested in, etc.

I would also recommend coming to look round on our next open day to see if it is the university for you because everyone is different!

I hope this helps.

Hello Arjun
We're really pleased you're considering ARU's Film and Television Production Masters degree - you can visit our course page to see more information.
Our Cambridge campus is home to some really fantastic facilities including:

  • Film studio with overhead lighting, tracks, dollies & green screen
  • Multi-camera TV studio (although this may be something you won't use if you're more interested in the film side of things)
  • Full range of location kit from 4k digital cameras, professional lighting and Steadicam (A really good one for budding cinematographers)
  • Sound-recording equipment for location filming
  • Editing suites with Da Vinci Resolve and full Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Aaton Cameras and Steenbeck editors for 16mm film production
  • Motion capture equipment
  • and more!!

Cambridge is a beautiful city (you can see a list of our favourite places in Cambridge) but it's also a fantastic place to study film. Our lecturers are well connected with industry professionals from both Cambridge and London (as it's only a short 50min commute into Kings Cross from Cambridge). Cambridge is also home of the Cambridge Film Festival and we have student-led film societies for events throughout the year. We also take our students on an annual trip to Sheffield International Documentary Film Festival!

You can start in January or September (and you can study full or part-time) so you can make the Masters work around you. If you're not going to start until September, I can recommend you join us at our next Virtual Open Evening to have more of a chat and get a feel for ARU's wonderful postgrad community.

If you'd like to ask someone more questions specific about the course, I recommend you chat with Catherine Elliott who is the course leader. She will be more than happy to answer any queries you may have and tell you in more depth about the course.

Best wishes and we hope to hear from you soon
Megan

CILECT is the grouping of the best film schools around the world. So these are the institutions you should be looking at.
Every university is going to boast about its facilities but they will all be variations of each other - digital cameras, editing suites, TV studios blah blah blah. What should be important is the quality of teaching, the work of previous students and the industry connections and guest speakers - and not just them claiming to have grads who went and worked somewhere but a long lasting partnership with a studio, production company (of note, not just a local shop who you’ve never heard of) or post house. Who are their regular guest speakers - people who have been back multiple times - because places boast of guest speakers who came once and never again and you will never meet them.
