UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree.
Film and television production are significant growing and developing industries in China with an increased emphasis on international co-production and collaboration. The BA Film and Television Production programme aims to equip students with the skills, knowledge and understanding of film and television production, and a critical and theoretical grounding in film, media and communication studies contexts.
With the curriculum delivered in English and drawing on XJTLU’s international education model, graduates will be well equipped in both language, subject-specific skills and critical abilities to go onto work in local, national and international media industries or to progress on to further specialist study.
This programme is not available on the 2+2 route.
