UCAS Application Guide

If you’d like to apply for our Filmmaking or Film Business and Entrepreneurship degree courses starting in September 2021, you’ll need to start thinking about submitting your UCAS application soon.

UCAS application deadline is 6pm on 15th January 2021

We don’t want you to miss out – applications that are submitted after January 15th will only be considered after all the on-time applications have been processed, so it’s best to get yours in on time.

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). Offers will be announced via UCAS’s ‘Track’ facility.
