Entry Requirements

Some proven experience in Marketing, Sales, Distribution, Press and PR is desirable. We would hope that students have worked in the media (although not limited to the industries we cover) and have a passion for Film, TV and/or games.

While many applicants will have a degree from a British or overseas university, we will consider applicants who do not have a degree if they have an impressive portfolio, a creative track record or an alternative qualification.

Scholarships

The NFTS is committed to ensuring it is open to students of genuine ability, no matter what their background or financial circumstances.

In the last year, 8 in 10 UK students received support, with more than £950,000 given out in total.

As an institution that develops the next generation of creative talent we feel a special responsibility to ensure our creative industries reflect the full diversity of our country. The NFTS awards more scholarships and bursaries to British students, relative to the size of our student body, than almost any other educational institution in the UK.

All long term resident UK students, once they are offered a place on an MA or full time Diploma programme, are invited to apply for an NFTS funding award. Awards may consist of either a bursary or a scholarship or a combination of both.

NFTS Scholarships are donated by individuals or organisations with a direct involvement in the film, games and television industries. They often include a mentorship and an individual donor may take in interest in your work.

The NFTS funding awards contribute directly to tuition fees and may be between £1,000 and £10,000. They are not re-payable by the student.
They are only available to UK permanent residents.

The Marketing, Distribution, Sales and Exhibition MA first launched in 2016 and was developed in partnership with UKCA, a key partner sponsor of the School that represents the overwhelming majority of UK cinema operators. The UKCA has previously supported students of the MA with scholarship funding, enabling them to gain the skills, knowledge and experience to become highly employable executives in the film, television and games industries.

The resumption of the scholarships is a further practical demonstration of the National Film and Television School and UK Cinema Association’s commitment to strengthening diversity and inclusion and making the film and television industry accessible to all.

Applications are currently open, with the two scholarship recipients due to join the MA in January 2023. The scholarships are aimed at those who may not otherwise have the necessary financial means to study at the National Film and Television School.

To apply for the Marketing, Distribution, Sales and Exhibition scholarships, you must be a UK citizen.

Eligibility
