Content

Delivered from the heart of the Scottish film industry in Film City Glasgow, the bespoke industry hub for some 20 independent production companies and post-production facility houses, including Scotland’s only Dolby sound mixing studio, our aim is to provide a stimulating, supportive and professional environment in which students can freely yet rigorously develop their unique individual voices under the mentorship of leading film practitioners from around the world including our own multi award-winning tutors, Professor Nick Higgins and Sam Firth.

Our distinctive offer will be defined and distinguished not only by its unique location, facilities and core teaching staff but also by an international guest faculty programme, who will complement our core tutors, support staff, and technical facilities, to ensure that from the moment they walk through the door, our students no longer feel as though they are “students”, but are already operating at the highest professional level, as creative collaborators in a context that replicates the conditions of the industry in which they intend to work. Previous guest tutors have included Oscar and BAFTA winners.
