With a perfect score of 100 Film Studies at the University of Southampton achieved high scores in all areas including student satisfaction and teaching.

The Guardian University Guide has put our Film Studies programme at the top of the league table for all Film Studies degrees in the country. The lead article in The Guardian on May 26, 2016 noted that “Southampton has risen to the top of the media and film studies table, after more students said that they were happy with the assessment and feedback they received during their course.” In addition to this the programme gained top scores for effective teaching and student performance, which is determined by the rate of improvement from entry level to graduation.

Professor Lucy Mazdon, Head of Film commented: “This is fantastic news. We really do put our students first and always do our best to take their comments and feedback on board. Our rise to first place in the league table provides a wonderful confirmation that this is working well and we are delighted that so many of our students had such a positive time studying film at Southampton” Film Studies at Southampton has a long history of being at the forefront of the discipline in teaching and research and is consistently ranked in the top five in both areas. The high ranking this year bodes well for incoming students and demonstrates the commitment the staff and the University have to providing high quality education for its students.
