In the US, more than 1.8 million people are enrolled in graduate film and television programs.
These include film school, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees, and many graduate programs offer certificate programs.
In contrast, the UK has just 14 film schools, and only eight certificate programs in total.
A spokesperson for the Department of Education said that, because of the nature of our higher education system, we cannot provide specific guidance for individuals in the UK who have a degree in film, television, and related fields.
The spokesperson added that the Department would continue to encourage all people to pursue a graduate degree in the fields of film, video, music, theatre, and design.
This year, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) released a report that suggested that film education in the United Kingdom could make a difference to the quality of our film and TV content.
The BAFTA said that there were “major gaps in the skills and knowledge” required to produce high-quality content in the film industry.
It suggested that students need to have an understanding of the production process, a “strong commitment to the production of quality work”, and a “knowledge of the arts, culture, and the production environment”.
This is a very different attitude to the UK than the one that has been suggested by the BBC.
In an article for the BBC’s website, presenter Andrew Neil argued that it is “time for the UK to embrace film, in all its forms, as the art form that it truly is.”
He also suggested that the British film industry is “on the brink of a cultural renaissance.”
Neil said that the industry is currently “on a collision course with a new, more critical vision of what film can be” and that this is what will “change the way we view the world.”
