How Do I Enrol?

If successful, you will be contacted to arrange a formal interview where you will be invited to meet with or talk to the Admissions Team. If you are an international student we can conduct interviews over the phone or Skype.

 

We will then let you know what our decision is within three days of your interview.

 

If you are accepted you will then be obliged to complete your enrolment. To do so, you will need to pay a 20% non-refundable deposit.

Appealing against an Admissions decision

In selecting students, admissions staff aim to reach decisions which are fair and consistent in relation to the published entry criteria, the evidence the applicant presents of their academic and/or professional qualifications and which take into account any specific skills or experiences which are essential or desirable for the programme in question.

Applicants who may wish to appeal against an admissions decision should follow the below procedure:

 

1. An applicant must seek formal feedback from the admissions team before deciding whether or not he/she has grounds to appeal the admissions decision. 

 

2. Appeals must be received within 10 working days following the provision of feedback from the admissions team member supervising the application. 

 

3. An appeal should be submitted in writing to the Head of Admissions, Met Film School, Ealing Studios, Ealing Green, London W55EP, or by email to info@metfilmschool.co.uk, stating clearly the grounds for appeal. 

 

4. A member of the Admissions team will screen each submission in the first instance to determine if there are sufficient grounds for appeal. If it is judged that there may be grounds for appeal, they will escalate the appeal to the relevant Director of Programmes for that course.

 

5. If an appeal is to be heard and additional information is required, the applicant will be informed in writing and provided with an appropriate deadline by which to submit the information. 

 

6. An Appeals Panel convened at Met Film School will consider appeals as appropriate. The COO will make a decision based on the evidence submitted.

 

7 .The applicant will be informed in writing of the outcome of the appeal and given an explanation for the decision which has been reached. The decision of the Appeals Panel is final and there is no further right of appeal.
