Applicants should have a keen interest in documentary films and a keen desire to make their own documentary films. A portfolio is not essential but many applicants send links to documentary work they have already made. Applicants should know what kinds of documentary interest them and why they have an ambition to deepen their involvement in documentary film study and production. A 1st degree is desirable but not essential. If applicants do not have the required qualifications, but do have professional experience, they may be eligible to gain credit for previous learning and experience through the Accreditation of Prior and Experiential Learning (APEL) through professional experience or a combination of courses and work experience. Experience is assessed as a learning process and tutors will evaluate that experience for currency, validity, quality and sufficiency.

Knowledge of film and media history and theory is not a requirement but candidates are expected to be interested in studying such questions. The application should be accompanied by an original documentary film idea (essential) and a short showreel (if available) of existing documentary film production work, with a clear note of the applicants role in each production. Applicants who 1st language is not English require IELTS 7.0 (or equivalent).
