Media beyond the classroom

In Media and Film Studies we provide lots of opportunities to experience the subject outside of the classroom. Film making projects are often shot on location and we encourage students to be ambitious with their use of locations both interior and exterior. There are also many trips and enrichment activities such as visits to the BFI and The London Film Festival.
