Subject

Cinematics

For over 30 years, Kent has been at the forefront of developing film as an academic subject. Our expertise means that you have a wide choice of areas to explore. As a student, you become part of the community based within the School of Arts building a creative hub for students of film, drama, media studies and art history. Our degree programme: Our degree is flexible: you study film theory but you also have the option to explore film practice for example, through developing the skills of a film critic or getting involved in creative film production. In the first year, you cover the language of film (framing, sound, editing, performance, lighting), learn about the theory and the history of film, and can take a practical filmmaking module. In your second and final years, you have a huge range of modules to choose from, covering everything from avant-garde to animation, with a variety of practice modules too, including screenwriting and documentary film. Year abroad: Your year abroad takes place between your second and final year of study. In previous years, students have studied at our partner institutions in the following countries: Canada; Hong Kong; Japan; France; Germany; Ireland; Italy; USA.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

A few years ago graduates from this subject were having a very hard time but things have improved a lot thanks to our active media, film and photographic industries - much the most common employers for this group. The most common jobs are in the arts — as photographers, audio-visual technicians, operators and designers, as directors, as artists and as graphic designers. Training in presenting sound and graphics is useful in other industries as well, so you can find graduates in journalism, in advertising, in business management, in events management and in web design and IT. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common in the arts, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' — having several part-time jobs or commissions at once.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
