1) Minimum 2:1 undergraduate honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in film studies or a subject in which film or media plays a significant part (candidates from other disciplines may be considered)
2) Two academic references
3) 4,000 word writing sample on a relevant topic
4) An academic transcript of your first degree
5) Evidence of English Language proficiency if first degree is not in English (see college English language requirements)
Guidelines for Writing Sample: If you have been away from study and are unable to submit a previous piece of work, you will need to write a new essay. What we are looking for is evidence of your ability to research a topic and write about film in a theoretically informed way. Suggested topics include: Adaptation of Novel into Film (your essay should focus on a contemporary example) and Film Remakes (again, your essay should focus on a contemporary example). In addition to analysing a particular film, you will need to acquaint yourself with some of the scholarly literature on adaptations or remakes.
