This course will provide you with the opportunity to visit many leading universities, as well as enjoy films on cinema trips. We have recently partnered with Screen Yorkshire, which will allow our students to access links into the film and television industry that may otherwise be difficult to access. You will have the opportunity to exhibit your work outside of lesson and will also be able to take part in our Upskilling Programme to develop your skills outside of lesson time.
Film Studies is a good subject to study at University, but can also lead into an apprenticeship. University courses like Film Studies, Film and Television and Filmmaking all work well with A Level Film Studies, but it can also help in relation to degrees like Broadcast Journalism and Media. Apprenticeships can be found but are few and far between, although BBC and ITV are large providers in the region.
Students who complete a qualification in Film Studies go on to a wide variety of jobs. These can include: Film Director, Location Manager, Video Editor, Camera Operator, Special Effects Technician or Teacher, to name a few.
