The information in this handbook is as accurate and up-to-date as we can make it. Statements of departmental policy are made in good faith and are an honest attempt to describe current practices, but they do not replace entries in university regulations. In the event of uncertainty, regulations take precedence.


The BA in Film and Literature and the BA in Film Studies are administered by the Film and Television Studies department, although modules are taught by staff from Film and Television Studies, English, French and German. This means that most administrative matters are handled by Film and Television Studies and all your personal tutors are from this department. The information below centres therefore mostly on Film and Television Studies, though at appropriate points references are made to matters that affect the literature departments (see, in particular, ‘staff’ and ‘curriculum’ below).


The Film and Television Studies department is situated on the ground and first floors of an annexe to Millburn House. Staff offices, and most of the teaching and resources rooms, are between rooms A0.12 and A0.28 on the ground floor and between rooms A1.12 and A1.28 on the first floor of the building.
Common Room facilities
Within the Film and Television Studies annexe, you may congregate in room A1.23 in between classes when this room is not in use for seminars or meetings.
This public space is for your own use and enjoyment - use it considerately, and remember to leave it clean and tidy. (If these reasonable rules are not followed, the use of this space may be withdrawn.) The whole of Millburn House is a no-smoking area.
The nearest outlet for food and drink is located in University House.
The Departmental Office (A0.13)

The secretary and Administrator, Ms Tracey McVey, in room A0.13, plays a key role in answering queries, and the booking of rooms and keys (see section 2, Resources). Please note the office hours displayed on the door. They are normally:

Monday 8.15 – 6.15

Tuesday 8.00 – 4.00

Wednesday 8.00 – 4.00

Thursday 8.15 – 6.15

Friday 8.00 – 12.30
The Film Booking Office and Departmental Secretary (A0.12)

16mm and 35mm prints of films for projection are delivered to and collected from this office, which is staffed by Dr Adam Gallimore and Mrs Heather Hares. Adam is responsible for collecting essays in addition to managing the teaching collection, and arranging video/DVD screenings.

Adam’s office hours are:

Monday – Tuesday 8.30 – 5.30

Thursday – Friday 8.30 – 5.00

There are two display boards in the corridor outside the office, with information of a general nature concerning events in the field of Film and Television Studies (e.g. conferences). Watch general noticeboards, in the corridor, for announcements of open lectures by visiting speakers to the department or the university (also posted on http//
