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 Screen and Film School 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.

Successful applicants will usually need to provide the following, as a part of the admissions process:
A copy of your academic transcripts and certificates, showing that minimum entry requirements for the course have been met. This will need to be officially translated into English. We can accept Dialexy or other official English translators. Please do not worry if your final academic transcripts are not due until summer. You can provide this as soon as it is available – the latest deadlines are usually in August*.
*This deadline may vary for students who require a Visa under the Student route of the Points Based System to study in the UK full-time.
For country-specific entry requirements please visit our international entry requirements page.
Copy of your passport and/or valid ID
Admissions may request a copy of your passport to confirm your fee status and/or to determine if you need a visa to study in the UK. This is to ensure that the correct information on the admissions process is given to you for a successful application.
We will be required to check all passports and or valid ID’s in person at the point of enrolment to fulfil Right to Study (RTS) checks. Failure to provide this may result in the student not being able to enrol onto the course.
