Some of our students share privately rented houses throughout their time on the course to fully immerse themselves in the film school experience. Our friendly Admissions team will help you find the right housemates and advise you on trusted landlord and estate agents you can rent from.

Halls of residence can be very expensive and this is a cost-effective way of living in the centre of Brighton, getting to know your fellow classmates and plunge into the world of studying filmmaking.
