The first two years of the programme at the Subhonours level provides a set of four core courses (one per semester) in film analysis, film history, world cinema, and film theory. In these first two years (level 1 and level 2) you take a total of 240 credits or 120 credits per year. 80 credits of these (40 per year) must consist of the four subhonours film modules, allowing you the opportunity to explore other subjects alongside film studies.

Students with marks of 11/20 or better are allowed to progress to Honours level study where you will have the opportunity to work closely with leading international scholars to develop your own interests, skills and specialisms within film. The modules on offer varies each year. For a full list of those on offer this year, see honours modules.
