Film

Universities around the world offer accredited film courses for current or returning students with a personal or professional interest in film. Film courses tend to fall within a defined area of specialization: where some work with primarily technical subjects, others focus more on the creative process. Video Production, Scriptwriting, Post Production, Costume Design, Acting, Audio Description and Documentary Filmmaking are some of the areas of specialization available within film courses.

Film courses are available for students to study on a full time or part time basis. Offered at universities and academic institutions in Europe, Asia, North America and around the world, film courses can range in duration from a week to a year or more. With such a high level of diversity in both the scheduling of the courses and the subject of specification, there are film courses to suit any student's needs. Professionals in many different business sectors may find the lessons learned in film courses, such as creative thinking, communication, teamwork and technical skills, useful for concrete applications in their field.
