NFTS’ fees unlike many other film and TV schools include the costs of all the films and TV shows made at NFTS as part of our curriculum, including the graduation films.

Fees cover tuition, resources and equipment, materials and unlike other schools all production costs. In addition, for all the productions you are involved in you will be given a cash Production Budget. Fees must be paid in full before registration for each year of the course and are not refundable under any circumstances. Many UK students at the NFTS receive some form of financial assistance with the cost of their course - find out about scholarships and other sources of funding on our Scholarships page.

British and EU Nationals or Internationals with indefinite leave to remain in the UK are entitled to tuition fees at the Home rate. EEA and Swiss Nationals, children of Turkish workers, and students with Refugee status or with leave to remain, may also qualify. Please refer to the UKCISA website - www.ukcisa.org.uk - to determine if you qualify for the Home rate of tuition fees.

EU referendum: For EU citizens enrolling onto a two-year MA in January 2018 or January 2019, they will continue to pay home fees for the second year of their MA.

A non-refundable deposit of £500 is required against the cost of your fees on confirmation of your place on all courses.
