Eligible students can apply for government funding to help meet tuition fee and living costs. If you are planning to pay for the tuition fee with a student loan, you must start your student loan application as soon as possible. We can offer you help and support to do this via BIMM Institute or at the film school.

***Please note we cannot accept Non-EU International students unless you already have a VISA which allows you to be in the country for the duration of the course you would like to study.


The Fair Access Fund

The Fair Access Fund applications for 2020 are now closed

Every student has different needs and The Fair Access Fund aims to support successful Screen and Film School undergraduate applicants in the following ways:

  • Financial support: Financial support for tuition fees and maintenance costs including rent
  • Course material support: Software, hardware and reading materials to support engagement with a Degree course
  • Engagement support: Specific support needs including counselling, additional learning support or help to access Disabled Students Allowance (DSA)

The amount of support that you are awarded will depend on your circumstances, but as a guide, we are looking to support students in the following ways:

  • Financial support:
    • Low household income fund of £1,500 per annum
    • Care leaver fund of £3,000 per annum
  • Course material support of up to £400 per annum
  • Engagement support package of up to £400 per annum

Applicants will qualify for one element of this fund which best suits their needs. Applicants can and will be considered for more than one component, but only when exceptional circumstances have been taken into consideration

The Fair Access Fund is available through our validating partner BIMM Institute.



If you need financial support for the diploma courses, there are banks that could offer you a loan. Otherwise, the course fees don’t need to be paid until two weeks before the course start date, giving you time to save before joining us.

For the Filmmaking Diploma you must accept our offer and pay a non-refundable deposit of £500. This deposit can be paid by card online, by direct transfer (please see below for bank details) or in cash at the school office. This deposit is part of the total fees payable.
