Our location in West Wales is unique. Our film and media students have taken inspiration from the unspoilt beauty of the landscape and coastline, and the opportunities it presents to those interested in environment, wildlife, sports and culture.

Our classes are based in a purpose designed suite in the University’s new Teaching and Learning Block, which while offering state-of-the-art facilities, affords views over the beautiful surrounding countryside.
