Study a Film degree in China in 2024

A bachelor's degree in film blends the art of filmmaking with theoretical study. Film degrees usually take 3-4 years to complete. During a film degree, you might be offered the opportunity to study specialisations such as directing, screenwriting, world cinema, and others.

Tuition fees for international students vary depending on the country you are studying in, but scholarships and grants can help financially. Film graduates can either choose to pursue further study, or look for a job in the industry to gain practical experience.

Study in China

China has long been regarded as a global superpower when it comes to economic, business and political standing. Its reputation as a higher education destination has taken longer to earn, but is rewarded on merit. The country's government has invested in university and higher education over the last few years, with the aim to increase the international student population. This investment has meant that there are many more courses offered in English than there were a few years ago, making China a new and exciting destination for international students.
