Film & TV at Bucks Receives Formal Accreditation from Creative Skillset

The Film & TV course at Bucks has just finally received full accreditation from Creative Skillset - the UK Government body which oversees university courses in the creative industries. So, what does this mean for Bucks, and why is Creative Skillset Accreditation important?

Gateway Building at Bucks
Creative Skillset offers students applying to Bucks a stamp of approval. In other words, it's a kind of kitemark of quality, an independent validation of good practice and sound teaching methods.

One of the many pre-requisites for Skillset validation is that the course under consideration has to have been running for at least 3 years. Film and TV has been running for 5, so they have now ironed out all the bumps and are now fully confident that what they offer their students is a world-class education.

Our animation & VFX course has been running for just one and a half years now. When we have three years under our belt, we will be applying too. It will be hard work, but we are confident that when the time comes Creative Skillset will be impressed by the animation and visual effects work being done here at Bucks.

For more on the experience of studying at Bucks New University, come and visit us at one of our Open Days,  take a virtual tour of one of our animation studios, check out what our students think of our course, and see why we're ranked in the top 12 creative universities in the UK. Find out why we're giving free laptops to all our students, and why we give all our students free access to videos at Lynda.com. Also, see what financial assistance might be available to you.
