About Film and Drama at University of Kent

Studying a joint honours degree in film and drama allows you to explore and develop your passion for the visual and performing arts, putting you on track for a successful career in the creative industries. 


We are one of the three major universities in the UK for film studies, and one of the most highly regarded departments in Europe. Film at Kent engages with cinema's rich scope and history, from silent classics and mainstream Hollywood to world cinema and the avant-garde. We have a thriving film culture, with 10-20 films screened on our courses each week, the Gulbenkian Cinema (the regional arts cinema) based on campus and a lively student film society. We also have the Lupino - a state-of-the art cinema which students can enjoy as part of their studies. 

Our modules cover film theory, history and practice, from the basics of form and style at Stage 1 to exploring topics including national cinemas, animation, cognition and emotion, fantasy and pulp film. Academic modules can be combined with innovative and creative practical study, including modules such as film criticism.


Drama at Kent is taught by leading performance practitioners and lecturers from all around the world. Our range of industry-standard facilities includes studios, performance spaces and workshops.

There is a diverse array of exciting modules to choose from that incorporate a distinctive balance of practical and theoretical elements. This allows you to develop the skills and vision needed for employment in the creative industries and beyond. Consequently, our Drama courses are among the most popular in the country with strong National Student Survey results every year.
