Film, Media and TV research

Research pic Film and Television at Kingston has a strong and distinctive research identity. Teaching from BA undergraduate to PhD supervision is informed by staff research - in terms of conference papers, monographs and articles, but also through professional practice such as sound installations, documentary films and photography.

We believe in lifelong learning, not just in getting students to their next qualification. We have a commitment to our students, and we welcome them to an academic community of mutual respect and collaboration. We will help you achieve your aims, supporting you closely and pushing your limits as you become an expert scholar, a brilliant filmmaker or both. But we also know that you'll teach us, and your fellow students, during the journey towards your MA or PhD.
