NFTS Scotland - Opening February 2018
The first hub of the National Film and Television School outside of Beaconsfield is set to open in Scotland in February 2018 with courses expected to start in April.
First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon announced funding of £475,000 in her keynote speech at the 2017 Edinburgh International Television Festival, to support plans for the world leading National Film and Television School (NFTS) to open a hub at BBC Scotland’s studios in Glasgow, and Dumbarton Studios.
The School will specifically work to address gaps in existing provision by delivering courses other providers aren’t currently offering in Scotland, such as Production Accounting, Script Editing and Factual Development. Diversity and inclusion are key priorities and there is a joint aspiration that a third of all places in the first two years will be fully funded scholarship places.
