Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at Met Film School

Directing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Juliana - November 2018

I have loved every minute of it. And I'm constantly coming back to Met Film School, either to work on a project or to help the tutors. I've kept in touch with my friends as well, who are often active around the school. I'm really produ to be a graduate here. read full review

Producing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Sienna Beckman - August 2018

Lectures and course - very good. A very comprehensive overview and learning experience of both the film and television industry, and what it means to be a producer in both. Wide range of lecturers and insight into the industry from many different angles.
Organisation and admin - quite poor. Many emails go unanswered, disorganised, not very well run. read full review

Screenwriting MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Jeffrey Salkilld - August 2018

I had a good time but it was because I put work in, this is not a uni for people who can’t work independently. You must take all the networking opportunities otherwise you won’t make it in film. read full review

Producing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Winnie - August 2018

I have gain valuable experience during the course outside of class,
However the course itself is disappointing , a lot of self learning. It is an academic institution that require student to do most of the learning themselves outside of class, which was not expected, not to mention there are 10 to 5 class Monday to Friday .

Also the student level and quality varies too much , some people are with no experience at all while some are had worked in the industry and we're extremely skillful already , it is hard to provide /get education under this condition , in addition it is unfair to judge all those student with different level under the same standard read full review

Producing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

K S - August 2018

This is a school for those looking to gain access to the television and film industry at an accelerated pace. You get back what you put into your university experience. If you come to Met ready to work and network, you'll find what you're looking for here as you're surrounded by like-minded people and -- based in Ealing Studios -- you're also surrounded by industry professionals every day of the week. read full review

Directing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Chris Jensen - August 2018

My time at MetFilm School is unparalleled. The ability to learn filmmaking by award-winning industry professionals and get to meet students who turn out to be amazing people who are incredibly passionate and talented. I loved being able to work on professional projects utilising the school's facilities for work both on the school's premises and outside. This has been the best education I've encountered anywhere; if only the MA Directing course was two years instead of one. read full review

Directing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Humphrey Pitman - July 2018

It's really amazing at MET. I must say I'm very impressed and feel I've well and truly gotten my money's worth. They are helping to learn sooo much and after years of trying to get a job (29 yo) I now feel that I am well on my way! :)

Sorry if that sounds a bit relaxed and not academic. I'm going to write a proper review on Google after this, because these little boxes are not really working for me. But yes, the quality of education is of an extremely high standard, which I know because I have spent years trying to learn some of this stuff. read full review

PostProduction MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Beniamino Vitagliano - July 2018

Studying at Met was a waste of time and money.
Most of the teachers (especially the course leader) do not care at all about your reel, helping you learning more, finding a job. I had the feeling most of them just became teachers because they were not really successful in the industry and showed up in class just to get paid. It is a bit sad but at least this was my experience.

Especially my course leader, oh God that guy was bad really bad, I remember during our Visual Effects module he was giving us videos to edit of previous student projects (while I wanted to learn visual effects, and he sent me to the dean because i complained lol). He has 0 industry experience and talks so much bs it was crazy, that guy is a clown. I spent 1 year with him and his classes were less informative than a 5 year old pretending to teach you how to use premeire. read full review

Directing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Thomas - March 2016

I have done my BA at another art univeristy in London. I had a great time and I learnt a lot. This was the worst experience of my life. I wasted so much time and money. I don't know any other British institution that would tolerate it. I also feel like the knowledge that I got I would be better of just reading a book on filmmaking and inverting that money into my personal projects. It's all about money at met, you have to pay for everything. They push you to spend as much money as possible on your grad film (they recommend £4000-£7000) however often people are just not experienced enough and a lot of money gets burn. Honestly most of the people at my year were really dissatisfied. I know you really want to get into film but either consider a different institution or watch some youtube videos and make your own projects. I have been to this school and I am at the same point of my career that I was before going there. I am much more poorer though. read full review

Producing MA

MET FILM SCHOOL

Maria - January 2016

Given all ups and downs, I am very happy with my Met Film School experience.
Probably having another UK Filmmaking MA degree helped, as I seem to have had more reasonable expectations than people who were doing an MA for the first time. Also I have had little industry experience before I started the course, so all the information gained I found to be invaluable. But if you have a lot of experience and know everything already - why do an MA? Met Film School answer would be - to get to know great industry professionals in person, which you would have never got to meet otherwise, and to build a useful network of student friends, as these two things are truly invaluable and can't be gained otherwise. read full review
