About the course

Could you develop, finance and produce a feature film or major TV drama?

This course trains creative producers in the four key skills they will need to succeed in the industry: creative development; hands-on producing; finance and business affairs; and distribution/sales.

Our students lead teams made up from the other disciplines at the School to produce at least three films to industry standard – with all production costs being met by the NFTS. They also undertake a Cannes Festival work placement and are individually mentored by a successful producer through the second year of the course.

Entry Requirements

We’re looking for people with a lively and proven interest in film, television and the world about us.

The ideal candidate will have a strong personality; good communication skills; a commitment to story-telling; and the ability to work collaboratively.

The role of producer is a many-sided one that encompasses creative intelligence, team leadership, and problem-solving skills, and this course equips alumni to succeed equally well as producers or as successful executives in the film and television industry.

Scholarships

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. Therefore they have an added prestige.

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 although there is also currently one small scholarship available annually to a French-speaking student.

Value of Scholarship(s)

£1,000-£10,000

Eligibility

NFTS funding is only available to UK permanent residents.

Application Procedure

Students are invited to apply in both of the two years of the MA course. Some scholarships are intended to be for a particular specialisation, for female students, or awarded on ethnicity or according to the UK region of an applicant.

Applications are treated confidentially and are means tested. The school reserves the right to ask an applicant to provide proof of his/her financial circumstances and of possible family support. The Assistant Registrar must be notified immediately of any change in an applicant’s financial circumstances. Careful consideration is given by the Scholarship Panel with a view to responding to demonstrated financial need. Funds are limited and students are asked to estimate responsibly how much assistance they think they will need as this affects the School’s ability to accommodate students in serious need.

Unfortunately, we are unable to open this scheme to EU or International students, or to students on the Diploma programmes. There are some course specific scholarship opportunities available to Diploma students. Please check the latest situation on the NFTS website course pages.

There may not be enough scholarships available to allow the school to give one to all applicants. Therefore it may be necessary for you to make alternative arrangements for your tuition fees and maintenance.

All students offered a place are provided with guidelines for applying for independent funding. This information is distributed during the summer. NFTS funding applications are received in September and the Scholarship Panel meets in October to decide the awards for the following year. Decisions are announced shortly afterwards.
