† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

All international students are allocated a mentor as part of the School’s International Buddy Scheme.
Applicants may be required to provide evidence of media work via a web link and/or a screenplay. Interviews will be conducted in person or via Skype.

This programme aims to provide students with the high-level technical skills and knowledge required to establish careers in the media industries in areas such as film-making, post-production, and project management. Some students may choose to pursue careers in teaching or undertake a research degree at doctoral level.
Graduates of the programme have gone on to work in the media industries and in further and higher education. These roles include: Film Festival Co-ordinator, Feature Film Director, Film Editor, Video Producer, UniLad Adventure Video Editor, Post-production Editor at Envy, high school teacher in media, Lecturer, and University Video Development Co-ordinator.
After graduating from the University of Lincoln, alumnus Lisa Rustage worked on major feature films including 'Ready Player One', 'Jason Bourne', 'Ophelia', and recent blockbuster 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. She says: “After attending a cast and crew screening in March 2018 and seeing my name in the credits of a Steven Spielberg film ('Ready Player One', 2018), it was emotional to see how far I have actually come! I broke into feature films on 'Jason Bourne' (2016) in the editorial department, which was the most challenging feature I have been on to date. It was a tough time, but I pushed through and found myself on set for 'Ready Player One'. Off the back of each film I kept meeting more people in the industry, working up to second assistant editor, which I am now.”
International student Anthonia Ziregbe’s documentary 'View within the Straight Lines' was screened at the Cambridge International Student Film Festival 2019.
