Entry Requirements & Application Deadlines

Entry Requirements

Except in exceptional circumstances, all applicants need to be 18 years or older at the time the programme begins

Applicants under the age of 21.  Must provide evidence of a minimum of 64 tariff points (2018/19 entry) or an equivalent level three qualification such as a National Diploma or Baccalaureate / International Baccalaureate. If you need more information visit the UCAS Tariff Table.

Applicants who are 21 years old or over.  MetFilm School welcomes applications from mature students. The selection process for mature students takes into account previous experience alongside the above academic achievement requirements.  Applicants will be guided through the application process by an admissions manager, who will evaluate how your experience will support your undergraduate education.

International qualification holders.  MetFilm School welcomes applications from international students, and has a diverse student body.  Applicants should check that the qualifications they hold are recognised in the UK.  UK NARIC is the UK’s national agency responsible for providing qualification information to individuals from outside of the UK who wish to work, study or train within the UK. Applicants with overseas qualifications can contact UK NARIC on tel: +44 (0)871 330 7033.  We recommend applicants who are unsure if their qualifications meet the academic criteria submit their application and we will then be able to make a full assessment.

Application Deadlines

January 15. UCAS Application Deadline
This is the most important deadline for students to be aware of. If we have not received your application by this date, then we cannot guarantee your application will have equal consideration to earlier applications.  Your application will still be considered in the below options, but we recommend you submit your application by this date. This is because the majority of our places are allocated by this point.

June 30. Late Application Deadline and International Students Deadline
We keep a number of places available until this deadline. International students’ applications will normally not be considered after this date due to the length of time it takes to process UK student visas applications.

July 15 Onwards. Clearing

We regularly have a few places available during clearing due to student withdrawals.  Get in touch with our admissions team to find out more.

To ensure your application process goes smoothly, we advise you to discuss your application with a member of the Met Film School Admissions Team who will be able to advise on all queries.

International students who require a visa to study in the UK are advised to apply as soon as possible in order to obtain a Confirmation of Acceptance to Study for their visa application in time for their course start date.

Selection Process

Once an applicant has sent us their application, MetFilm School will get in touch with the applicant to discuss the next steps. If successful, the applicant will be contacted to arrange a formal interview, where they will be invited to meet our Admissions Team. Interviews with international applicants can be conducted over the phone or via Skype.

Met Film School will then let applicants know their enrolment decision within three days of an applicant’s interview.

Applicants that are accepted onto an Undergraduate programme will then be obliged to complete their enrolment. To do so, applicants will need to pay a 20% non-refundable deposit. The remaining balance is paid according to the terms and conditions as described in the offer letter that will be issued to accepted students.

Students from outside the EU will need to pay the entire first year course fee before the school will be able to issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) to submit with their student visa application.


Appeal Process

In selecting students, admissions staff aim to reach decisions which are fair and consistent in relation to the published entry criteria, the evidence the applicant presents of their academic and/or professional qualifications and which consider any specific skills or experiences which are essential or desirable for the course in question. Applicants who may wish to appeal against an admissions decision should follow the below procedure:

  • An applicant must seek formal feedback from the admissions team before deciding whether or not he/she has grounds to appeal the admissions decision.
  • The applicant should then request an appeal form to fill in, detailing the nature of their appeal.
  • Appeals must be received within 20 working days following the provision of feedback from the admissions team member supervising the application.
  • An appeal should be submitted in writing to the Senior Admissions Manager, MetFilm School, Ealing Studios, Ealing Green, London W5 5EP, or by email to info@metfilmschool.co.uk, stating clearly the grounds for appeal.
  • The Senior Admissions Manager will screen each submission in the first instance to determine if there are sufficient grounds for appeal. If it is judged that there may be grounds for appeal, they will escalate the appeal to the Director of Admissions and Marketing.
  • If an appeal is to be heard and additional information is required, the applicant will be informed in writing and provided with an appropriate deadline by which to submit the information.
  • An Appeals Panel convened at MetFilm School will consider appeals as appropriate. The Dean and Director of Admissions and Marketing will make a decision based on the evidence submitted.
  • The applicant will be informed in writing of the outcome of the appeal and given an explanation for the decision which has been reached.
  • The decision of the Appeals Panel is final and there is no further right of appeal.
