Deadline for applications

If you’d like to apply for our degree courses starting in September 2023, you’ll need to submit an application through UCAS before 18.00 (UK time) on Wednesday 25th January 2023. This is the equal consideration deadline set by UCAS, and we guarantee everyone who applies by this deadline will be considered on a fair and equal basis.

Applications that are submitted after this date are considered after all the January equal consideration deadline applications have been processed.

What are the benefits of applying by the equal consideration deadline?

  1. Guaranteed consideration for your chosen course.*
  2. More availability when booking your Applicant Day.
  3. Receive an offer sooner – the earlier you apply the faster we can process your application.
  4. Be one of the first to confirm your place for September 2023.
  5. More time to organise your finances and accommodation.

As an offer holder, you will also gain access to exclusive content, webinars and events.

How does the UCAS application work?

At this stage, when you apply to UCAS you’ll be asked to submit up to five options for the courses that you’d like to study, at the education institutes you’d like to join. You’ll find Screen and Film School’s course under BIMM Institute. To make an application through UCAS, you’ll need to go to www.ucas.com and register before you can submit any choices.

What to include in your UCAS application

Your application will need to include the following:

  • A list of all your academic achievements, including any pending qualifications.
  • A Personal Statement (under a maximum of 4,000 characters).
  • A reference from either a teacher, tutor or employer.

What happens after I’ve applied?

Once your UCAS application has been received, we’ll invite you to attend an Applicant Day. If you aren’t able to attend in person then there are other options available such as digital portfolio submissions.

What happens next?

If you meet the relevant entry requirements and attend an Applicant Day, you’ll either be provided with a ‘conditional offer’ (pending until we receive your exam results and certificates) or an ‘unconditional offer’ (you’ve met the entry criteria for the course and don’t need to supply any additional information). You can view your offers via your UCAS Hub.
