Film and Moving Image Production at Norwich

Welcome Week starts on Monday 25 September and this is when we will meet you on campus and introduce you to our buildings and facilities. You will meet the staff team and other students on your course and take part in some introductory activities designed so you can get to know each other and remain safe on campus. You will also attend talks about the services and facilities the University offers.

The first taught day of your course is the Monday 2 October. Generally, you will have timetabled sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. The rest of the week will usually be independent study time for you to research and develop your projects.

Individual timetables will be given the start of the course. In addition to sessions on campus, there will also be digital teaching sessions such as Wednesday mornings discussion and development session and regular individual tutorials. You will be introduced to all these elements so don’t worry about any of this now!

On independent study days, and days where digital teaching is scheduled, you will be able to access the campus to continue your work as needed, or you can elect to work remotely. We will help you plan your time.

You will see that we’ve included some suggestions of things you might like to read, watch, and do before you arrive.

We look forward to seeing you in September
