You may be a recent BA graduate wishing to further their knowledge with access to NFTS industry specialists or perhaps you’re an up and coming filmmaker focused on your area of specialism but wish to know more about other departments involved in the filmmaking process. It could be that you want to have an overview of the filmmaking process before applying to one of our specialist Diplomas or MAs. Whatever your circumstance, check out this course page to find out if it's right for you!

If you complete this course and then successfully secure a place on an NFTS Diploma or MA, we will refund you half the certificate course fee on taking up your MA or Diploma place at the School.
