Study at a specialist film school

Through our BA (Hons), MA and Short Courses, we give students a grounding in all aspects of filmmaking and screenwriting. Our approach is practical, aided by our small class sizes, student-centred approach to teaching & learning, and the school’s ethos and community atmosphere.

Learn the fundamentals of film and screenwriting with our Integrated Foundation Degrees. Students can complete a foundation year and an undergraduate degree at Central Film School, in a total of three years.

Undergraduate Degrees at Central Film School prepare you for a career in the screen industries. The two-year structure allows students to gain an equivalent degree to one achieved in three years elsewhere.

The Postgraduate degrees at Central Film School offer you an opportunity to develop skills that can be used in professional settings in film, television and creative industries.

Our Short Courses allow you to study at a pace that suits you and are a great way to transition from one industry to another or fill the gaps in your professional knowledge.
