"The FRTV course at Canterbury Christ Church University really helped to allow me to explore film and animation, and was the foundations for my career. The department has great facilities and resources and enabled me to use the latest equipment. The lecturers, technicians and support staff were all friendly and helpful and supported all of my student productions."
