Support for New and Current Students
How long do Film FX courses last?
At the University of Bolton, we offer both full-time and part-time courses dependent on your circumstances and how you'd like to study. An undergraduate full-time course will last 3 years, and a part-time course 4.5 years. A full-time postgraduate course is 1 year in length and a part-time course 2 years.
Details about the length of a Film FX course can be found on the course pages. Just choose the relevant course and browse the information.
You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
At the University of Bolton, we understand our students have different requirements and pride ourselves on the positive and supportive learning environment we provide.
