While the practical skills gained from course lead directly to the workplace, some students ‚top up‘ this qualification to a full Bachelors degree. If you choose top-up program with similar content, you should be able to enrol in the final year of a Bachelors degree at another university abroad with your HND from Prague Film Institute.
The first year of filmmaking degree course you will study the same modules as students from the 1-year filmmaking course. The second year you will study advanced modules according to your course specialisation. Read more below.
