Film and Creative Writing (Including Year Abroad)

In our media-led world, does film merely reflect society or shape it? Our courses are ideal for those with a natural curiosity for the world. Our BA Film and Creative Writing allows you to pursue your interests in filmmaking and creative writing in a fully integrated programme of study. Our distinctive curriculum combines hands-on practical filmmaking, creative writing workshops, and theoretical and contextual studies. You forge links between theory and practice, and make critically-informed choices in your own creative work through your knowledge of film history, literary classics and writing across a range of genres. Your third year spent abroad gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable.
