Film, Media and TV at Kingston University are based around the fundamental idea that our students are film scholars (and filmmakers) from their first day as undergraduates, and that we all belong to a shared scholarly and practice community. Our lecturers, practitioners and researchers are world-class, and they choose to teach at Kingston because of its culture, its environment and its students. We are here because we want to share with, inspire and encourage younger scholars, in a diverse teaching environment.
You will be taught by leading experts in the subject, but they won't tell you how to think. We want you to find your own distinctive voice - in writing, practice or both - and to develop it during your time with us at Kingston. Many of our undergraduates stay with us and move on to one of our MA courses (in Film Studies or film making), to a PhD at Kingston, and even to teaching on the undergraduate degrees.
Film at Kingston offers a sense of culture, belonging and identity. Staff will guide you, advise and inform you, but are always approachable. Teaching is structured around lectures, screenings and practical workshops, followed by small, weekly seminar groups and regular personal tutorials. Our students know that our office doors are always open for informal discussion, and that they can find us online or in person to ask us questions. We believe that research excellence must be integrated with excellence in learning and teaching, and that academic support is as important as subject expertise.
We pursue the highest standards in our own work in order to inspire and support you to even greater heights. We want to be proud of you - and we want you to be proud of Kingston.
