University of Worcester Film Department - Mature Student Information Event – 1st December 6pm

Do you want to start a new career, turn an interest into something more, return to your studies or feel like taking a ‘second chance’ and open up a whole new chapter in your life? Then you’ll be in good company at the University of Worcester.

The Film Department is welcoming mature students to study Film Production, Screenwriting, Animation, Journalism, Drama or Dance. We have a long history of extending opportunities and supporting adult learners who wish to study these exciting areas - with around a quarter of our current undergraduates being mature students. Age and experience can be a distinct advantage with the skills, motivation and life skills you bring with you.

You may be worried about how you’ll cope with the demands of academic work particularly if you’ve been out of education for a few years. But there’s lots of support available at Worcester University to help you make the most of your time, from part time working to on-site childcare.

If you’re interested in seeing what the University of Worcester Film Department has to offer you then come and chat to the lecturers and past and current students at The Hive on the 1st December 6.pm.

No need to book, just come along.
