NFTS Scotland opened its doors in spring 2018, bringing the National Film and Television School’s world-class training and innovation to Scotland.

“It’s a huge privilege to be one of the first participants to enrol at NFTS Scotland, which I could not have done without the support of the bursary fund provided by the Scottish Government and the BBC. Their support has helped start my journey to fulfilling my dream to be a successful documentary director and producer in Scotland.” Meray Diner, course participant
