Student life

Undergraduate student life

As a student in Film Studies at the University of Exeter you'll be based in one of the top rated English departments in the UK for research, teaching and student experience. The dedicated Film Studies team have a wide range of expertise across American, East Asian, European and other world cinemas and receive excellent student feedback for their teaching. You’ll also have access to outstanding resources, including the extensive holdings of The Bill Douglas Centre, the largest library on the moving image in any British university.

On Campus aspiring directors, screenwriters, cinematographers, editors and actors can get involved in Film Soc (Exeter Film Society). Whether you’re an absolute beginner or already a pro, Film Soc is open to all students, offering weekly workshops and free equipment hire to inspire you to partake in, or even create your own, short films. The society undertakes an annual portmanteau project, as well as supporting you in other independent projects and organising discounted trips to Exeter cinemas. Film Soc caters for the filmmaker, the film critic and the casual film watcher.

Locally in Exeter there are many venues to enjoy film including the art house cinema Picturehouse and Exeter Phoenix.
