What are the entry requirements for Screenwriting?
The entry requirement for this course is a Bachelor (Honours) Degree at 2:2 or above in any discipline.
We may also consider lesser qualifications if you have sufficient relevant work experience within the industry.
You will also be required to attend an interview and/or be asked to show evidence of an aptitude for the course, appropriate experience, and an indication of how you might benefit from the course.
As part of the application process you will need to submit the following with your application:
- A personal statement outlining why you want to write for the screen (maximum 300 words)
- An outline for a feature film or single television drama (maximum one page)
- A writing sample - this may be a short film script or an excerpt from a feature film script or television drama (maximum 10 pages)
The University does not sponsor students to study on part-time programmes in the UK under the Student Visa route. International Applicants must therefore have other valid immigration leave to study on this programme.
Can I get admission into Screenwriting based on my working experience in this sector?
This course has academic entry requirements which are assessed alongside relevant work experience. Full details of any relevant work experience, including references should be submitted with your application and may be considered for entry where the minimum academic entry requirements are below those required.
Usually, unrelated work experience is not considered sufficient for entry without meeting the minimum academic entry requirements. Please contact us with your specific circumstances by submitting an enquiry form above and we will be happy to discuss your options.
Can I make an appointment with an advisor to discuss further about the admission process?
