This MA combines high level teaching skills with a unique practitioner-driven industry access programme, providing students with the key business tools and contacts needed to build a career in film. Unlike existing film-related degrees, this new MA explores the entire film business, embracing world and national cinema(s), non-Hollywood independent film production, financing, sales, distribution and marketing, alongside programming, exhibition and digital strategies for the future. The ambitious team behind the MA is dedicated to training a new generation of producers and executives that brings both excellence and innovation into the film industry beyond Hollywood. By analysing the horizontal and vertical structures that shape the film industry, in tandem with changing patterns of users and digital technology, this programme explores both the existing international film industry while also embracing the current high levels of disruption and restructuring. Taught in London and the South-West, the programme includes a networking placement; industry mentoring supported by an advisory committee of leading UK and European film industry professionals; a research trip to the Berlin Film Festival; and an opportunity to work on an London Film School graduation film as a producer.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
As a research-intensive university, we recognise the vital role postgraduates play in our research and student community. We also recognise that funding your study can be a major barrier to realising your ambitions.
In some instances scholarships may be made available from our colleges for masters study.
In order to aid your search for postgraduate funding opportunities at Exeter, we have developed a web-based funding search facility which enables you to search for all relevant funding opportunities by subject area and level of study.
Many awards are competitive and merit-based so if you are considering applying for a funding scheme, we recommend investigating options early.

This has translated into its highest ever league table ranking (seventh) and outstanding ratings from students for teaching quality, assessment and feedback.
