The MFA offers the opportunity for students to develop an understanding of non-fiction film as a research practice. It opens with an extended piece of work during which you will be encouraged to reconceptualise what ‘documentary film’ is. Drawing on broad based anthropological thought about the social and cultural world we aim to produce filmmakers who are imaginative, risk-taking and intellectually engaged: pushing boundaries in the field.


You will develop your camera and editing skills in a context of critical enquiry about the social world. You will learn and explore diverse forms of creative non-fiction filmmaking including how to collaborate with researchers from other fields. You will learn how to take risks in pushing the boundaries of film form. You'll deepen your knowledge of documentary film history and learn how to use moving image in diverse ways.


Students undertake modules to the value of 300 credits.


The programme consists of four compulsory modules (135 credits), three optional modules (45 credits) and a graduation project (120 credits).


Upon successful completion of 240 credits, you will be awarded a MFA in Creative Documentary by Practice.

Change the World Around You

 

UCL is a top-ranked university with life-changing research and a progressive approach to academia, making it different from the rest. At UCL, postgraduate students learn by doing—shaping the world around them with a hands-on approach. Innovators, industry disruptors, thinkers and magic-makers choose UCL to jump right into studies across hundreds of programmes.

Where novel thinking is nurtured and encouraged

UCL is a diverse community with the freedom to challenge, to question, and to think differently. Our community pursues academic excellence, breaks boundaries and makes a positive impact on real world problems.

An Academic Powerhouse

UCL is 10th in the world in the “QS World University Rankings 2020.”  There have been 30 Nobel laureates among its former staff and students; a winner in every decade since the Prize started.

World Leading Research University

At the very heart of UCL’s mission is our research. We were rated the top university in the UK for research strength in the last Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). We offer over 675 postgraduate taught, research and initial teacher education programmes across a wide range of disciplines, and encourage our community to work across traditional subject boundaries. UCL's research-based teaching methodology means that research is integrated into many of our degrees and students have the opportunity to make an original contribution to their field of study. 

London’s Global University

UCL sits at the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic cities, meaning you are perfectly placed to take advantage of everything London has to offer. We were the first university in England to welcome women to university education, and the first university in England to welcome students of any religion or social background. UCL has 18,000 students from outside the UK, with over 150 countries represented, providing a truly global perspective.

Disruptive Thinking Since 1826

For nearly two centuries we’ve confronted humanity’s biggest issues, and today we continue our heritage of disruptive thinking. Through our research, many minds at UCL work together to improve lives and communities and create real world impact.

At UCL we know that students choose to enter graduate study for a myriad of reasons, and we are deeply committed to supporting our student’s aspirations and enhancing their skills and employability. UCL Careers helps students to find their perfect career, develop their professional skills or start their own business through one-to-one guidance and events, as well as a variety of careers information. Recruitment and networking events help students improve their knowledge of a particular industry sector and specific employers. For students interested in starting a business, UCL Innovation and Enterprise gives expert advice and practical support, as well as networking opportunities.
