  • Receive one-to-one support from an academic supervisor and an industry mentor for your dissertation


One of the key benefits of the MA in International Film Business is the opportunity it gives you to create a network of contacts. You will be working alongside fellow students and established industry professionals with opportunities to meet big players in a variety of industry fields. The film industry more than any other is about contacts, as a graduate of our programme you will have built a good network of your own.


The final dissertation will be related to an issue covered on one of the modules that is then developed by you into an independent study of 20,000 words. The specific topic for the dissertation will be selected by you in discussion with one of the course tutors ? acting as the dissertation supervisor ? ensuring that the final dissertation is informed by the overarching learning process of the MA International Film Business as a whole. You will work with both your allotted supervisor and with an industry-based mentor, who will offer an industry-based perspective on the topic. The mentor will be appointed in consultation with the course leaders from Exeter and LFS.
