Using film in teaching

Using film in teaching

If you want to use films, TV programmes or other audio-visual media in your teaching, the library can help ensure the materials you need are available from the Library Collection.

Find out how we can help with:

  • Including films in your module reading lists
  • Using film in the classroom (also known as film screening)
We subscribe to a number of film streaming services. See below for more information.
