Central Film School undergraduate programmes are based on a ‘two year fast track’ mode of delivery, which informs rigorous and robust programme design and teaching & learning methods to create a positive student experience.
Using this model, CFS does not operate in a traditional university framework of assessment cycle, for example, on a three year BA reassessment and progression occurs in the summer months between each level (4 to 5, 5 to 6). On a Fast-Track programme, the transition period between levels can be as little as four weeks in most cases. This puts increased demand on the allocated time for the cycle of marking, external moderation, ratification of results and confirmation of progression through the Module Board of Examiners (MBE). This cycle takes a minimum of 8-10 weeks from the final assessment submission point, and means that students have commenced learning at the next level before officially progressing.
