UK: New film focus at Bangor

Interested in taking on the world of film-making… and maybe one day winning an Oscar? Bangor University, in Wales, is now offering a full honours degree in Film Studies.

Dr Nathan Abrams, who was appointed Lecturer in Film Studies in 2006, says the course will “offer study options for all tastes, covering all periods and areas of the globe.” Students learn both practical and theoretical skills in media production, and will choose from modules such as:

  • animation
  • film history
  • writing for film
  • East Asian film and culture

The Film Studies program is offered through the National Institute for Excellence in Creative Industries, part of the University’s College of Arts and Humanities.

The University has a good reputation for research and teaching in this area, and degrees can be combined with other schools.

Bangor University is consistently rated highly amongst British universities, especially for its low cost of living, helpful staff and support, and great student experiences. The campus is located in a safe, friendly, small city near the Snowdonia Mountains and the sea. There are plenty of outdoor activities on offer.

There is a thriving international community there, as Hong Liu found when he began his banking and finance degrees at Bangor. Originally from Wuhan in China, Hong was recently awarded runner up in the Wales International Student of the Year Competition.

The competition recognises students who have made a difference. Hong worked as a Housing Officer at the Student’s Union and as a part-time house-keeper for a retired British couple, which gave him unique insights into the British way of life. He also helped with University administration and international social events – all helping him get the most from his 5 years at the university.

“Bangor is one of the best choices from a cost-benefit perspective,” Hong says. “Everything is very convenient, and… we can get help from both an academic and university life perspective. The local people are always nice and smiling, making you feel at home. This is the most important impressions an international student feels here.”
