Interested in an MA in Cinematography (UK)


New Member
Hello everyone, I'm currently at the end of my second year of my undergraduate and I am interested in studying Cinematography in the UK.

The places I am looking at right now are:
- Goldsmiths
- University of the Arts, London
- Met Film School
- London Film School
- National Film and TV School

It would be great to know from anyone who studies at any of these places. What are the downsides and upsides? How hard is it to get in? What was your application process like? Did you get a scholarship or external funding of any kind?

I have currently been involved in 3 amateur-semi professional student films and hopefully a few more before I start applying in early 2024. Is this good enough? I know NFTS and maybe LFS may be much much harder to get into.

From what it looks like, NFTS and LFS are the best film schools in the UK. But which ones are better out of the other three? Especially between Goldsmiths' cinematography course and UAL's Film course. Are there other postgraduate film courses in the UK I should be looking at?

These are just some of the things I am wondering. Happy to chat to anyone :)
