Film Studies is a detailed study of film as an art form in terms of its visual storytelling. Not only will it change the way you watch film, but more importantly it will challenge you to think in new ways and question or change your perspective on a whole host of issues including representation of race or gender. Studying film allows you to understand important issues and developments within history, society and culture. Film Studies is regarded as an academic subject in its own right, and Russell Group universities accept Film Studies as an appropriate A Level qualification when prospective students apply to study a discipline related to humanities or arts.

What could this lead to?

A Level 3 Diploma, which is the equivalent to 3 A Levels, can take you to university to study higher education subjects such as: animation, television and film production, photography and digital imaging, media studies, video game design, publishing, journalism, advertising and interactive media.

What careers could I aim for?

Employment in the screen industries has grown by over 20% since 2009 and will substantially outpace the economy-wide increase of 3% if the skills shortages in this area are fulfilled. Career paths for students of Creative Media Production may include practical avenues such as Film-Making, Directing, Producing and Editing but the qualification also allows you to move into more theoretical pathways such as Film Criticism, Journalism, Teaching and Education.
