Description

Advertisement

This MA combines high level teaching skills with a unique practitioner-driven industry access programme, providing students with the key business tools and contacts needed to build a career in film. Unlike existing film-related degrees, this new MA explores the entire film business, embracing world and national cinema(s), non-Hollywood independent film production, financing, sales, distribution and marketing, alongside programming, exhibition and digital strategies for the future. The ambitious team behind the MA is dedicated to training a new generation of producers and executives that brings both excellence and innovation into the film industry beyond Hollywood. By analysing the horizontal and vertical structures that shape the film industry, in tandem with changing patterns of users and digital technology, this programme explores both the existing international film industry while also embracing the current high levels of disruption and restructuring. Taught in London and the South-West, the programme includes a networking placement; industry mentoring supported by an advisory committee of leading UK and European film industry professionals; a research trip to the Berlin Film Festival; and an opportunity to work on an London Film School graduation film as a producer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

Accreditation

Exeter is a top UK University, according to all four of the main higher education league tables

Each league tables ranks more than 100 UK higher education institutions.

The Times and the Sunday Times Good University Guide ranks Exeter in 8th position. It says: Exeter is one of Britains most popular universities in terms of first-choice applications, not only in its traditional strong suit, the arts, but increasingly in the sciences and social sciences.

The Sunday Times in 2012 named Exeter 'Sunday Times University of the Year 2012/13'.

It said: 'Exeters success as The Sunday Times University of the Year is richly deserved. Shortlisted for the top award no less than four times in the past decade, it has consistently embodied the very best in British higher education. A key player regionally, nationally and internationally, it has responded to the challenge of £9,000 fees by raising its game more than any other university. Students are benefitting from £380m of investment in facilities social as well as academic timed to come on stream at just this moment. This has translated into its highest ever league table ranking (seventh) and outstanding ratings from students for teaching quality, assessment and feedback. More than four in five leave with a first or 2:1 and very few drop out. It is not hard to see why.'

This years Guardian league table lists Exeter in 12th position out of 120 higher education institutions. It says: One of the lesser-known recipes for happiness is to live in a place where other people choose to go on holidayAdd to that the fact that the Streatham Campus is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the country and that Exeter is rated one of the best universities in the UK for "ents", and it's no wonder that increases in applications far exceed the national average.Exeter has an excellent academic reputation.

The Complete University Guide published in the Independent lists Exeter in 10th place.

Exeter is one of the top 150 universities in the world according to the Times Higher Education's World University Rankings.

The University is ranked 168th in the QS World University Rankings.
