Hi all! Random question- did NFTS ever call any of your references? Or did you just send in your letters of recommendation?
I received an email saying I needed to contact my references and that they were supposed to send their letter to the registry. I’m assuming they do it that way so it’s more legit than if you send the letters on yourself. As far as I know, the school didn’t personally contact them.

Just got my conditional offer for Film Studies, Programming, and Curation a few days ago and now navigating the minefield of documents I need to get in order (I'm from the U.S.). If any U.S. student here has any advice on where to look for scholarships I would be eternally grateful. And congrats to everyone else who has gotten offers!!
What are the conditions for your offer? Does it depend on the visa process?

Hello everyone,

So, I was nominated as a reserve candidate at NFTS and although I know that doesn't mean a rejection also, i’m aware there has to be a vacant spot for one to be considered.

I would like to know if there are students that finally got an admission offer after being a reserved candidate at NFTS. What are the chances of a reserved student still getting an admission to the same academic year at NFTS?

Hello people,

I never got a response to my question does that mean that no one at all on this thread ever got such offer neither does anyone here know somebody who has? Or could it be that fonts here haven't been online in a while?

@admin this is very important to me and if it’s possible that you move this to a thread that will get attention and the reply I need, I will deeply appreciate it. Thank you.

Hello guys, has someone applied to the Directing Commercial course? I can't find a single thread (if not from 2017) and i'm a little bit worried as there aren't feedbacks about that specific Diploma. Can you help me?

Hi everyone, just thought I'd post one last time on this thread and also give an update of sorts. So, yeah, I started this thread originally because it was lonely and wanted to interact with people going through the same thing especially given the world is practically broken now. And of course I got rejected from both Screenwriting and Directing Fiction. I've been reading the thread back (on the days I ignored it and yes I got the email about TV directing and producing. I wasn't interested).

Well, the day after I got rejected from DF, I applied for a film school closer to home. Met Film School in London. Right next to Ealing Studios in fact. And surprisingly got a very quick response two days later saying I had secured an interview. Anyways, shock aside and skipping to just 3 days later, I had the interview and yeah, was offered a place at the end of it. After accepting the offer and paying 20% of the course fee, my place is confirmed and am officially going to Met Film School to do an MA in Directing (before Chris W responds to this, yes I have already put my application up on the website).

I quickly studied it after getting rejected from DF as I had often looked past it as "lesser than" and inferior to the likes of NFTS and LFS but, they have some pretty strong alumni (Tomisin Adepeju who appeared on the BFI Who We Are talk being one). And have masterclass as well as some cool tutors. NFTS have an informal relationship with this school for a reason. So yeah, I decided I misjudged it and applied. I got it and now am a soon to be Met Film School MA Directing student. And I guess following my mantra, "everything happens for a reason". Hope everything's good here and congrats to those who have done their interviews, got in etc. and good luck to those who have been rejected. I know you'll figure things out and bounce back hard. G'day to you all and see you hopefully in the industry or just abouts near it.

:)
Hi Jacob, I'm now considering whether to accept the offer from MET(MA Directing). Would you mind sharing your experience in MET and are those negative reviews about it online correct? Look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Uncle,
I've also applied for Screenwriting. I think the interview process varies. Some people say there's a bit of a good cop/bad cop situation while others say it's quite relaxed. What seems clear is that they'll ask you about the writing sample you submitted with so I guess it would be worth re-familiarising yourself with it.

Hope this helps!
