UK applicants need to apply through UCAS.
A UCAS application requires applicants to complete a simple online form where they will have to supply the following information:
- Personal details
- Details of the ScreenSpace degree programme applied for
- Education and employment history
- A personal statement
- A reference, and contact details for your reference
Once you submit your application, a member of the Admissions team will be in touch to arrange a brief interview. This can be done in person at Ealing Film Studios, where we are based, or over the phone.Applicants will be assessed on their background, creative experience and passion for studying at ScreenSpace. Applicants are encouraged to research ScreenSpace and MetFilm School prior to applying. If you are accepted at ScreenSpace, you will be given an offer via UCAS. It is then your responsibility to accept this offer at your preferred institution.

This is the most important deadline for students to be aware of.

Fees and Funding
New full-time undergraduate Home and EU students
New full-time undergraduate Home and EU students who will be starting a course at ScreenSpace in the 2018/19 academic year are able to apply for a student loan to cover the cost of their university tuition fees.
Home 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.
To apply online for student finance, visit the Direct.gov student finance website.
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 2018/19 academic year will be eligible for the same funding and support as those in 2017/18.
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.
Please also note that international students who require a visa to study are not eligible for this course.
International students who require a VISA to study in the UK are unfortunately not eligible to apply for ScreenSpace courses.
However, MetFilm School courses are open to all students who meet the relevant language and admissions requirements; please do get in touch with our admissions team who will be able to advise you on your application.
If English is not your first language, or if your previous education was not conducted fully in English, you will need to provide documented evidence of your English language competence to study a course with us.
ScreenSpace accepts the qualifications listed below as evidence of English language ability from students from the European Union. However, we request that students submit an IELTS score of 5.5 overall as preference.
