MA in Filmmaking

Overall Rating

I feel very disappointed by this course and feel the course should not be allowed to operate in its current form. I think there's only 1 person that should consider this course and that is someone who is interested in film and needs an MA qualification for a certain reason such as teaching or gaining a work visa for example. The only reason I did it was because it offered the chance to continue working while all the other courses I looked at were full-time. I think now its finished and in hindsight I should have sacrificed my finances and done the 1 year full time course in a proper Institution with facilities hands on tutoring and more practical classes. Raindance do not offer much for your money apart from guidance.

Student Union


Clubs and Societies


Uni Facilities

They had just 2 empty rooms and no equipment so facilities were non-existent.

Course and Lecturers

What I liked the most was the mentors as I found speaking to a working industry professional once a month very helpful. This however was the only thing I liked about the way in which the course was taught. In every other respect Raindance offered nothing. They expected the student to design and organise the whole course structure and source and buy all the books. They said it was for flexibility but I think it was so they had to do nothing but give feedback. No official classes were taught and the only classes available were public beginner courses which is not very useful for a Master programme to do beginner courses.

City Life

The main HQ is in central London so yes its quite a good location although you only attend for the first 3 months and then its from home.

Job Prospects

There was no effort in this regard and I was disappointed to find out there were no job placements.

Student Support

Feedback was always offered through Skype sessions.
