MetFilm School’s Admissions Team is based in London and Berlin, and handles Admissions for all accredited and non-accredited courses for the London and Berlin Schools.
The Complaints Procedure is available to all registered students on accredited and non-accredited programmes at the MetFilm School.

MetFilm School considers refunds and compensation to be a remedy of last resort and is committed to using its best endeavours to ensure all students are able to continue and complete their studies at MetFilm School. It is however important to explain how MetFilm School will refund or compensate students if MetFilm School is unable to preserve that continuity of study.
This policy covers three situations:
- where a student withdraws from a course for a variety of reasons
- where MetFilm School makes a change to a course
- where MetFilm School is unable to continue offering tuition.
This Student Protection Plan (the “Plan”) has been drawn up to set out the measures that we will take in order to protect our students’ continuation of study on Accredited Courses in the event of changes to or closure of such Accredited Course, or closure of a campus or the School, as described in this Plan.
