London Film School firmly believes that everyone who has the ability to benefit from higher education should be encouraged to access it with ease and flexibility. We aim to select applicants who understand and are likely to contribute to our philosophy and ethos, and will benefit from joining The London Film School. These will include those from under- represented groups, those looking for second opportunities, those already in work, and those looking to develop themselves later in life.
Equality and Diversity
We are committed to fair, transparent and consistent practices that enable us to recruit a diverse student body, and promote equal opportunities for all applicants regardless of gender, including gender re-assignment, marital or civil partnership status, having or not having dependents, religious belief or political opinion, race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins), disability, sexual orientation and age.
We welcome disabled applicants and encourage them to disclose the nature of their disability in their application. This enables Student Services to be pro-active and discuss the provision of reasonable adjustments, enhancing their student experience and ensuring compliance with legislation.
Information about disabilities disclosed in the application are not made available to reviewers and interviewers and are not considered as part of the selection process.
Applicants with Criminal Convictions
London Film School recognises the role of education in the rehabilitative process and will consider applications from applicants who have declared criminal convictions as part of the application process. However, in order for us to meet our duty of care obligations to students and staff, we will ask for information about any relevant criminal convictions that are not subject to filtering.
Information provided by the applicant will be treated confidentially and only reviewed by a Criminal Convictions Panel. The panel normally consists of the Director, the Head of Studies and the Academic Registrar.
The School supports the published BFI Principles. Read here: http://bit.ly/2Nmb88e .These are a set of principles to tackle and prevent bullying and harassment in the screen industries which the School fully supports, and expects all of you to respect.
