    I want to apply for Film School in the near future and I have done a lot of research online about this. However, I am confused. I saw that some Film Schools have educational programs that last courses that last 1 or 2 years, while others last for 3 or 4 years. How many years is a Film School??

    I am a student at Met Film School in Berlin, Germany and my BA program has 2 years.

    I saw that as well for London Film School. Weren't BA degrees supposed to take 3 years to complete and Master's degrees to take 2 years? This is what gets me confused.

    I know three people who studied at Middlesex University in London. They went for a Film BA. Took them 3 years to graduate. Here you can find the modules they studied.

    The fun fact is that all 3 people are from my hometown. I live in Romania. I don't know why they went for this specific Film School to be honest.
