This includes complimentary access to the BFI Player, the BFI’s award-winning streaming platform. The player has over 700 films and is the leading platform for world and independent cinema. Our partnership also means access to a range of bespoke masterclasses given by BFI staff members and BFI network colleagues. You will also have access to a number of benefits, discounts and offers. As the BFI is only a short walk away from LSBU, on London’s South Bank, you have ready access to the organisation that curates and presents the greatest international public programme of world cinema for audiences in cinemas, at festivals - and online.

You'll be taught by experienced lecturers and visiting tutors, who combine their teaching with work in the EPP industry.

Classes are taught in studios and labs in the Elephant Studios facility at LSBU. There are editing, grading suites and project rooms for independent and collaborative work.
Individual and group tutorials support our students in every module and we use Moodle as our Virtual learning Environment (VLE).

During the course students may also have the opportunity to join the South Bank Collective a student-run professional creative agency based on the University campus.


This technical module is designed to give you an experience of working in industry standards and according to established workflows in professional colour grading suits, using footage shot on high end digital cinema cameras. The role of the colourist in film and television is a creative role, and you will be called upon to exercise independent and creative decision-making. You will undertake the necessary research to make informed choices according to the demands of different professional, aesthetic and technological contexts.
