Our film courses have built an enviable reputation and helped produce Oscar and BAFTA winners and a high-profile alumni network that’s contributed to many global movies, including Star Wars, Godzilla, James Bond, Harry Potter and Mission Impossible.
At UCA, we believe in learning through doing. So from the very beginning, you’ll become part of a close-knit creative team, making films exactly as you would in the industry. Our Film Production degree is one of the longest-established degree courses in the country, and we embrace all areas of film production from documentary and fiction to filmmaking and critical writing.
Our dedicated team of staff are here to nurture your talents and encourage you to aim high. A number of them have worked with the BBC and Channel 4, on Game of Thrones, with Steve McQueen, Terence Davies and Sheffield Doc/Fest. We also have staff and visiting industry professionals who hold high profile connections with the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, HBO and Discovery.
You’ll be immersed in a creative environment and be able to meet and collaborate with people from a diverse range of creative disciplines, enriching your understanding of the creative industries. Our graduates bring professional skills and understanding of teamwork to the workplace. They’re able to use advanced problem-solving skills to take on briefs, translating them into imaginative creations, and many of our students have won awards for their extraordinary work.
