31 Jul University of Essex is top in the UK for student satisfaction in film studies
Essex is top in the UK for student satisfaction in film studies, with 100% of students expressing overall satisfaction with their course in the latest National Student Survey (NSS).
Film studies courses combine the history and theory of cinema with practical filmmaking experience. Students build up a portfolio of their own work, gaining hands-on experience of camera work, sound recording, editing, lighting, and scriptwriting.
Professor Jeffrey Geiger, Director of our Centre for Film and Screen Media, said: “We’re thrilled that our students have placed us top in the UK, and not for the first time.
“We put a lot of care into crafting our teaching and work closely with students so they can achieve their best results. We give students the tools to explore their creative interests and delve into cutting edge filmmaking, research and film analysis.
