Undergraduate Courses

Step 1: Apply

If you are UK-based, you will need to submit an application through UCAS at www.ucas.com using the appropriate UCAS Course Code (which you can find on our course pages). Once your application has been received, we’ll invite you to an Applicant Day.
Our Applicant Days are conducted in a relaxed and supportive manner. They’re a fantastic opportunity for you to interact with SFS in a fun, informative and educational manner. There will no testing, selection process or judgement of your skillset; rather, it is a chance to see if we’re right for you through workshops with our staff, current students and graduates.

Step 2: Personal statement

Part of your UCAS application is writing a personal statement. This gives us an insight into your ambitions, skills and previous experience, as well as giving you a chance to show your passion for your preferred path. For information on how to write a personal statement, check out our essential documents.

Step 3: Applicant Days and Portfolio Submissions

Depending on which course you choose, you may need to attend an Applicant Day or submit a portfolio of work as part of your application.
The Screen and Film School Admissions Department will send you preparation guidelines, which will be specifically for the course you have applied for. For example, if you have applied for the BA Hons Filmmaking or BA Hons Filmmaking top-up, you will be required to attend an Applicant Day or submit your portfolio to us electronically, if you have applied for the BA Hons Film Business & Entrepreneurship you will be recommended to attend an Applicant Day but we will review mainly your personal statement.

Step 4: Offers

If your UCAS application is successful, you’ll either be made a ‘conditional’ or ‘unconditional’ offer.
A ‘Conditional’ offer means that your place is pending until we receive any further information required, such as exam results and certificates. An ‘Unconditional’ offer means that you have met the entry criteria for the course.

Step 5: Confirm Your Place

Confirmation of your place will be made through ‘Track’ on www.ucas.com. It’s then up to you to confirm your place. Once you have accepted the offer, the Screen and Film School Admissions Team will be in touch with further guidance and information where applicable.
