Full-time undergraduate Home and EU students

UK and EU students For UK and EU students, the total course fee is £27,750, which is £9,250 per year. Students who will be starting a course at ScreenSpace are able to apply for a full student loan to cover this cost of their fees. 

UK students may also be eligible for a Maintenance Loan to cover the costs of study. For more information about student finance, read the Student Finance guide and the guide to how and when to apply.

EU students following the referendum

Following the EU Referendum, the current advice from The Student Loans Company (SLC) in England in relation to EU student funding is as follows: 

EU nationals or their family members, currently in higher education, and who are assessed as eligible to receive loans and/or grants from the SLC, will continue to receive these loans and grants until they finish their course. This applies to all student finance from the SLC for students in England for which EU nationals are eligible. This includes loans to cover tuition fees (for those residents in the EEA for three years), loans and grants for maintenance (limited to those residents in the UK for at least three years), and some other grants and allowances. 

The rules applying to EU nationals, or their family members, who have applied for a place at the university from this August to study a course which attracts student support are unchanged.  

The SLC will assess these applications against existing eligibility criteria and will provide loans and/or grants in the normal way. EU nationals or their family members, who are assessed as eligible to receive grants and/ or loans by the SLC will then be eligible for the duration of their study on that course. These eligibility criteria set out that for students beginning study from this August, EU nationals must have been resident in the UK for at least five years in order to apply for a maintenance loan.            

The UK Government has confirmed that EU students enrolling in the 2020/21 academic year will be eligible for the same funding and support as those in 2019/20. 

It has also been confirmed that students’ eligibility will continue throughout their course. For further information, please refer to the UK Government’s EU funding support page. 

International student funding and support

Unfortunately, no funding, bursaries or scholarships are available for international students.

Selection Process

Whilst we have some minimum academic requirements for students, academic ability is not the deciding factor for ScreenSpace in determining the students we recruit.

We are looking for specific skill sets such as the following:

  • A passion for content creation
  • Ability to present ideas and formulate creative solutions
  • Clarity of why the student wishes to study on the course
  • An understanding of the creative industries
  • Ability to work as part of a team

Once your application has been received it will be assessed against our academic criteria, and then your previous experience and personal statement. An Admissions Manager will also be responsible for looking after your application and your subsequent journey with ScreenSpace, up until you’re due to start. It is important to us that you feel supported through the process of applying.

If your application successfully meets our criteria, you will be invited to participate in a telephone or in-person interview. This will allow the Admissions Manager to ask you more about your reasons for applying, what you know about ScreenSpace and what your goals are. We also encourage you to participate in any of our free Discovery Days prior to applying, or after.

After the interview, you will be notified on whether you have been successful. Timings vary according to UCAS deadlines and periods which are busy. You will be notified via telephone, email and via UCAS itself.

For more information regarding our admissions policies, please review this document.

Appeals 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 Head of Admissions, ScreenSpace, Ealing Studios, Ealing Green, London W5 5EP, or by email to, stating clearly the grounds for appeal.
  • The Head of Admissions 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 ScreenSpace 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.

If you need further information to aid your application please don’t hesitate to contact our admissions team by phone on +44 (0)20 8280 9119 or by email.

Foundation Degree

If you don’t have enough UCAS points to join directly into the first year, UWL runs a foundation year which you can join before starting the first year of your degree (Credit Level 4).

Whatever your starting point, the Foundation Year offers a firm grounding in the underpinning skills and knowledge that you will need to survive at University.  We will work on written skills, and spend a lot of time making sure that your maths skills are strong enough to see you through your degree, so that by the time you get to Credit Level 4 you will be in a really strong position to get the most from your studies.

Apply for the 2021/22 Content, Media and Film Production with Foundation.
