Extended 4 Year Study Option
The four-year route to your degree is a great option to learn and practice skills, boost your confidence and help prepare you for an exciting and challenging degree course and your developing career.
By the end of the year, you’ll have experienced each of the main specialist areas of filmmaking, conceptually and practically, through several collaborative projects. On successful completion of this first year, you will progress directly onto Year 1 of the BA (Hons) Film Production course without further interview or application.
As a student at AUB, you’ll become part of a centre of excellence in art, design, media and performance which boasts an enviable record in graduate employment and specialises in turning your creativity into your career.

Level 4 (First Year)
At this level, all students, regardless of the chosen specialisms, will gain a common understanding of all disciplines. This level of the course introduces you to a range of technical knowledge, theoretical concepts and creative opportunities.
You’ll be introduced to fundamental aspects of health and safety, which are essential within the film industry, and which continue to be reinforced throughout the course. Through practical workshops you’ll engage in many aspects of the production process, enabling an informed and guided choice of specialisms at the end of the year.
The first year of the course aims to immerse you in the community and practice of making films.

Level 5 (Second Year)
During your second year, your specialist skills are developed, your practical and critical abilities are enhanced, and you become accustomed to the teamwork which is an essential feature of the film production process.
You’ll deepen your specialist learning and develop your ability to reflect on and evaluate your work. Your contextual knowledge and understanding are extended, and you become prepared for the more rigorous pace and scale of work demanded by Level 6.
Relevant health and safety practice will continue to be emphasised throughout the year of study.
Level 6 (Third Year)
As a final year student, you’ll demonstrate your abilities within your respective specialist roles and your commitment to the collective responsibility for the production and postproduction of graduation films.
Your third year enables you to develop and consolidate your specialist production roles, building on your previous learning. You’re required to undertake significant independent study whilst also contributing effectively as a team member to the production process. At this stage you’ll also confirm your award title.
Successful fulfilment of the demands of Level 6 will allow you to demonstrate your professional knowledge, including current health and safety practice, your creative and technical abilities, and intellectual maturity, all of which are necessary for effective operation in the film and media industries, or for progression to postgraduate study.
