National Film and Television School to open new location in Scotland in January 2018

The National Film and Television School is opening a new teaching facility in Scotland in January 2018.

NFTS Scotland will be based at BBC Scotland's studios in Glasgow, with an additional facility at Dumbarton Studios just outside of Glasgow. It will receive £475,000 in funding from the Scottish government.

The new school will initially only offer short courses, but will eventually expand out into three-month and twelve-month courses in a range of disciplines, including games design. The NFTS already offers a two-year masters course in Games Design and Development.

An exciting development

"This is an exciting development for our screen sector which is already an area of growth for Scotland," said First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon.

"While we have excellent university and college provision for a range of screen subjects and media skills, NFTS' plans will complement and expand the training opportunities available in Scotland."

NFTS Scotland is expected to start taking on students in April 2018. More information on the facilities and how to register interest in a course can be found on the NFTS website.
