Hi! I'm shortlisted for a full-time scholarship award in the UK and now I have to pick the postgraduate program I would like to join. I'm keen on programs that focus on documentary filmmaking and so far I've narrowed down to 2 choices: Goldsmiths (MA Filmmaking--Screen Documentary Pathway) and UCL (MA Ethnographic and Documentary Filmmaking).

They both to have their pros and cons and now I'm really having a hard time picking my top choice. I've already received an unconditional offer from Goldsmiths, I'm just waiting on UCL (University College London), which I hope will be positive as well.

Can anyone who has attended any of these programs give some input? Thank you!

Unfortunately we don't seem to have a lot of members that attend non-US film schools. But please keep us updated on what you decide! Hopefully you can be a good resource for future applications to both schools.

Hey, so at one point I was considering doing film school in London. All the schools didn't seem very helpful though as when I emailed them for information it took ages for them to get back. My mom's side of my family lives in London so I go there a lot.

I randomly I visited Goldsmith's when I was in London in December. It seemed interesting but I never got a chance to go inside the building or anything. The interior seemed like a mini Hogwarts but idk I didn't really get the best vibe when I was there. I know this doesn't help at all but I thought I'd just throw in my $0.02.

The NFTS has the most notoriety in London so I'd check there first.
