Film and Screen Studies by Advanced Study is no longer accepting new applications.

The MPhil was an inspiring and intellectually stimulating programme that allowed me to develop and expand my research interests in an interdisciplinary context. Cambridge has a fantastic film community and a highlight of the course was the contact time it offered through lectures, seminars and supervisions with experts across various disciplines, both from within and outside of the University. I will be returning to Cambridge to commence a PhD, to continue developing interests that were nurtured during the MPhil. The broad range of areas within screen media that were covered by the MPhil gave me the opportunity of working across various roles this year such as at the British Film Institute, within TV production and writing film reviews.

Emilija Talijan (August 2015)

The expertise and dedication of the teaching staff made the MPhil a fantastic experience. The course encouraged critical thinking about film and screen media from varied perspectives, and in a number of traditions. It also provided a tight-knit, supportive and stimulating intellectual environment. The MPhil was instrumental in preparing me for PhD research.

Piotr Cieplak (July 2015)

On the MPhil I was able to immerse myself in Cambridge's rich film culture, benefiting from a stimulating critical environment. It was when taking this course that I first began to systematically consider the relationship between film theory and practice; this paved the way for my future PhD study, and was vital for my development as both a filmmaker and a film lecturer.
