International Baccalaureate Diplomas – IB Film — Overview
Alongside one of our creative UAL Level 3 Extended Diplomas in Art & Design, equivalent to three A-Levels, all International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) students will also complete two IB Diploma subjects, each broadly equivalent to either an A-Level or AS-Level depending on whether they are studied at Higher or Standard Level.
Students can study two IB Diploma subjects, from English Literature, Film, History, Business Management, Mathematics, Environmental Systems & Societies, Visual Arts, or Psychology. IB Diploma subjects will be taught at Higher or Standard Level.
All IB Diplomas and the Levels that they are taught are subject to demand - for this reason, applicants must list three IB Diplomas on their application, in order of preference.
This course focuses on analysing and understanding film as a visual and auditory expression of culture, belief and imagination. As well as studying independent films with a global perspective, students will produce a portfolio of film works that explore their vocational aspirations, as well as producing at least one complete short film.
Students do not need any prior film production skills, just a passion for film and a desire to critically explore it through review, discussion, research and writing.
Assessment = Coursework (100%).
