MA Filmmaking Tuition Fees for entry in January 2015

The MA Filmmaking course is made up of 6 Terms (trimesters).  There are 3 terms each year – September to December, January to April and May to July.  The amount payable for each term is £8,601, so the total cost of the course will be £51,606 for the two years. The fees include all production costs for the film exercises in terms 1-5. In term 6, the school will put in a one-off "equity investment" amounting to £4,240 into each student's graduation film project.

If required, you can have the option to continue for up to two additional terms to allow you to complete the graduation film, for which you will be charged a one-off continuation fee of £300. Bursary students will be charged £50 (not covered by your bursary).

Please note these are the fees for students commencing MA Filmmaking in January 2015 and will be fixed throughout the 2 years to enable you to budget in advance.
