Learning

Outline

Cue the opening scenes of your glittering career in Film and TV. This is where it all begins. Study with us and develop your script ideas through a practical group project. We’ll explore theory like script and character development, visit London-based locations for inspiration, and learn practical filming tips from experts.

To really hone your skills, we’ll review your ideas and work on your technique, giving you all the skills you need to pitch your final product for invaluable feedback.

Teaching methodology

Learn the Oxford way with tutorial-style teaching. Your expert tutor will foster self-directed learning and critical thinking through interactive seminars in small groups (no bigger than 8). During your course, you will complete two pieces of independent work (essays or problem sheets), which your tutor will then evaluate in either a 1:1 or 2:1 tutorial. Tutorials will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your work and feedback with your tutor and learn new perspectives from your classmates. On completion of the course, you'll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.

The experience

Discover the best of British culture and beyond to find out what makes Great Britain so great by visiting all of its wonderful landmarks on foot, by bike or via the tube.

Hop on to London’s infamous tube system, and explore trendy Shoreditch (with its delicious eateries and boutique shops), visit Camden market for some vintage finds, or stroll along the Thames and watch the sunset behind the London Eye. Wherever you choose, you’re sure to be captivated by the city’s atmospheric charm.
