Regent’s
and VFS sign collaboration agreement

Regent's University London is delighted to announce its new partnership with the internationally recognised Vancouver Film School (VFS).

 

The partnership will allow VFS students to come to Regent's, following completion of a one-year course at VFS, and to top up to a full Regent's undergraduate degree in any of the following disciplines: Acting & World Theatre; Film, TV & Digital Media Production; and Screenwriting & Producing.   

Neil Herrington, Head of Student Recruitment, Regent's said: "I am thrilled to announce this partnership with the prestigious Vancouver Film School. Regent’s and VFS are situated at the heart of two world class creative cities – London and Vancouver. Together, we’ve created a really exciting opportunity for students to spend time at both institutions, enabling them to benefit from our approaches to film, media and performance education as well as the wider creative industries in both of our cities. I’m really looking forward to welcoming the first VFS students to Regent's in September 2018." 

“This agreement marks another important accelerated degree pathway for VFS—a tremendous opportunity for our students to earn two world-class credentials in as few as three years when studying full-time in two leading film and television production centres” said Dr. Ted Gervan, VP of Education, VFS. 

Gill Stark, Assistant Dean and Head of School, School of Creative and Liberal Arts, Regent’s said: “We are delighted to have developed a relationship between Regent’s and the Vancouver Film School. The agreement presents an opportunity for students from both institutions to enrich their educations and to gain a truly international perspective on their subjects and the industries within which they aspire to work.” 

The collaboration was marked by a signing ceremony at Regent's University attended by Michael Baser, Head of Writing for Film & Television and Film Production Departments, VFS and Deputy Vice Chancellor Simon Jarvis, Regent's on 14 November 2017.
