Using our MA Headquarters in Bedford Square, set in London’s Bloomsbury district with its exciting academic and cultural history, you have easy access to major cultural events as well as the wide array of academic support available in this prime location.
The Barbican, The South Bank, the cinemas and media facilities of London’s West End are close by as are the University of London Central Library at Senate House and the library and archives of the British Film Institute.
Our courses are run by Programme Directors from the Media Arts Department, all of whom are active film and TV makers, bringing a current and engaged perspective as well as a host of contacts to the courses.
The reputation of the courses and central London location mean that you’ll benefit from an unusually high amount of interaction with media professionals from independent programme makers through to broadcasters like the BBC and Channel 4, all of whom visit the courses as tutors and guest lecturers.
These regular visits from directors, producers, screenwriters, agents and other members of the production community bring expertise and current knowledge to the courses: using the MA headquarters enables both structured and informal cooperation between the courses.
Our main campus at Egham also offers excellent facilities, including a TV and sound studio, digital editing suites and dedicated and shared work spaces where appropriate. The Founder’s Library holds an extensive collection of academic journals, electronic databases and books on Film and Television Studies, as well as a large loan collection of DVDs and videos.
