This page contains everything you need to know about applying for our BA, DipHE and CertHE courses. Please read this information carefully and if you have any questions get in touch with our admissions team by phone on+ 49 (0) 30 76 73 331 70 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. View our Admissions Policy. Note, all undergraduate programmes are validated by the University of West London in the UK and students will receive a UK Higher Education degree.
All applicants need to be 18 years or older at the time the programme begins.
All applicants under the age of 21 must provide evidence of a minimum of 64 tariff points (2017/18 entry) and must have at least two A-levels or an equivalent level three qualification such as a National Diploma or Baccalaureate / International Baccalaureate. If you need more information visit the UCAS Tariff Table.
Applicants who are 21 years old or over are considered mature students and therefore do not need to submit evidence of academic qualifications. The selection process for mature students is wholly reliant on the application submitted and the Admissions team will make a decision based on relevant skills, experience or passion within the creative arts.
International qualification holders should check that the qualifications they hold are recognised in the UK. UK NARIC is the UK’s national agency responsible for providing qualification information to individuals from outside of the UK who wish to work, study or train within the UK. Applicants with overseas qualifications can contact UK NARIC on tel: +44 (0)871 330 7033.
November 15. Early Application Deadline
We offer a number of incentives to UK, EU and International students to apply early for our courses and show their commitment to joining our school as a preferred choice. Our admissions team will be able to provide further details about these incentives.
June 30. Late Application Deadline and International Students Deadline
We keep a small number of places available until this deadline. International students’ applications will not be considered after this date due to the length of time it takes to process German student visa applications. In particular, we keep this stage open to allow unsuccessful MA applicants to be still able to apply for a place on our Undergraduate courses to improve their chances to progress onto the MA.
July 15 Onwards. Clearing
It is unusual for us to have places available still, but we do get withdrawals and it is always worth contacting our admissions team to double check the availability. We provide further information around places nearer the time.
To ensure your application process goes smoothly, we advise you to discuss your application with a member of the Met Film School Admissions Team who will be able to advise on all queries.
International students who require a visa to study in Germany are advised to apply as soon as possible in order to obtain a Confirmation of Acceptance to Study for their visa application in time for their course start date.

Please include a list of what is included and your name/contact details with your application.
Once an applicant has sent us their application, Met Film School will get in touch with the applicant to discuss the next steps. If successful, the applicant will be contacted to arrange a formal interview, where they will be invited to meet our Admissions Team. Interviews with international applicants can be conducted over the phone or via Skype.
Met Film School will then let applicants know their enrolment decision within three days of an applicant’s interview.
Applicants that are accepted onto an Undergraduate programme will then be obliged to complete their enrolment. To do so, applicants will need to pay a 20% non-refundable deposit. The remaining balance is paid according to the terms and conditions as described in the offer letter that will be issued to accepted students.
Students from outside the EU will need to pay the entire first year course fee before the school will be able to issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) to submit with their student visa application. They will need to pay the final instalment of the first year course fee no later than three months prior to the start of the course to allow enough time for the German student visa application process.
In selecting students, admissions staff aim to reach decisions which are fair and consistent in relation to the published entry criteria, the evidence the applicant presents of their academic and/or professional qualifications and which take into account any specific skills or experiences which are essential or desirable for the programme in question. Applicants who may wish to appeal against an admissions decision should follow the below procedure:
- An applicant must seek formal feedback from the admissions team before deciding whether or not he/she has grounds to appeal the admissions decision.
- Appeals must be received within 10 working days following the provision of feedback from the admissions team member supervising the application.
- An appeal should be submitted in writing to the Head of Admissions, Met Film School, Ealing Studios, Ealing Green, London W55EP, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating clearly the grounds for appeal.
- A member of the Admissions team will screen each submission in the first instance to determine if there are sufficient grounds for appeal. If it is judged that there may be grounds for appeal, they will escalate the appeal to the relevant Director of Programmes for that course.
- If an appeal is to be heard and additional information is required, the applicant will be informed in writing and provided with an appropriate deadline by which to submit the information.
- An Appeals Panel convened at Met Film School will consider appeals as appropriate. The COO will make a decision based on the evidence submitted.
- The applicant will be informed in writing of the outcome of the appeal and given an explanation for the decision which has been reached. The decision of the Appeals Panel is final and there is no further right of appeal.
