Congratulations on your offer of a place to study at Exeter! The Film programme at Exeter is one of the very best in the UK both in terms of scholarship and the quality of teaching. The breadth and depth of our programme, the knowledge and enthusiasm of our tutors, and our active community of students make Exeter a fantastic place to study. We have world-class resources in film, but our finest resource is the commitment and passion of our students, and we look forward to welcoming you here as one of them!
Welcome to Film Studies and congratulations on holding an offer for this course! At the University of Exeter you will have the chance to dive into your interest in film and study anything from the earliest history of filmmaking to modern day practices. There are a range of different modules to choose from and the structure of the studies will really help you get a thorough understanding of Film Studies, as well as giving you opportunity to write about what interests you the most. Find out about Jorunn's typical week.

I most enjoy... The seminars, hearing everyone’s point of view and placing each film in its context. I like being able to walk everywhere in Exeter in a short time. The nature surrounding the University is certainly a very strong point. After I graduate I want to travel and live in different cities. I would like to make my own short films and music as well, with the different people I meet in each place. Find out about Pedro's typical week.
BA Film Studies with Study Abroad
My course so far has been fascinating. The uni offers so much other support too, like the undergraduate writing centre who have helped me with improving various essays or The Bill Douglas Cinema museum which I have used for research on the course and for coursework. Having never come across anything like the museum before, the range of artefacts stored in Exeter is amazing and they really add to your understanding of topics. It's definitely something that adds to the Exeter experience as no other unis have a range as large as ours.

The modules in English and film go well together, and I find subjects discussed in English modules useful in film and vice versa. The modules I have had so far have had a broad range of texts to study, with varied approaches and aspects to consider in each week. The structures of lectures, seminars, and workshops are helpful when trying to come to terms with more difficult concepts and theories, whilst simultaneously the pace is quick enough to keep interest.

Combining lectures and seminars with independent research, my course has given me the confidence to develop and voice my own opinion and interests in the field. The department’s links with the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum has been a really great resource; housing 75,000 artefacts the museum's collection is the second largest in the country and has provided a new dimension to my learning experience, allowing me to see, touch and analyse historical material that has changed audience perception of cinema for decades.
