The Standards and Industry Excellence

The Standards and Industry Excellence

QAA - Quality Assurance Agency

MetFilm School subscribes to the QAA. The School was reviewed by the QAA in November 2017, which found that the MetFilm School successfully met UK expectations in all areas of assessment, the quality of student learning opportunities, and the quality of the information about learning opportunities.

The QAA commended our enhancement of student learning opportunities at MetFilm School. We have signed up to the QAA Academic Integrity Charter and are committed to ensuring our students and staff uphold and maintain the highest standards in ethical approaches to filmmaking, research and other aspects of study.

University of West London - Degree Validation

Our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees are validated by our partner The University of West London. The University of West London has a particular focus on careers and employment.

UWL is number 1 in the UK for student satisfaction, student voice and academic support (NSS, 2022), and is ranked in the top 10 Universities in the UK for teaching quality. Our degrees must go through a process of approval that ensures they meet the University’s requirements.

Screenskills

Our BA (Hons) Practical Filmmaking courses and MAs in Directing, Cinematography, Screenwriting, Producing and Post-Production have been awarded the ScreenSkills Tick, which is given to courses that can prove they connect with industry and teach professional skills that make sure students graduate work-ready.

MetFilm Production

MetFilm School is not just a film school but part of the creative industry. Working together with our award-winning sister company MetFilm Production, we offer our students an access to industry professionals and an opportunity to get involved in the making of high-profile documentaries and fiction films.
