The School of the Arts to offer film as IB diploma subject

Graduating O-level students interested in studying film now have another option open to them. Starting next year, the School of the Arts will be offering film as an international baccalaureate subject under the direct school admission -junior colleges exercise.

Currently, the school only allows its own students in its six-year programme to take film as a subject in their last two years. It has two cohorts of seven students each. Sota is the first national pre-tertiary institution to offer film in its diploma programme.

Application opened last week and interested students should submit their portfolios to the school by July 15.
