Napier University is not a college. And it changed its name to Edinburgh Napier University. Can this please be changed on this site. Thanks.

you should also include another Film School http://www.regents.ac.uk/lsfmp/ on your list. The Regents London School of Film, Media & Performance

I think there has been a misunderstanding on the list of best UK film schools. It is Bournemouth University, not Bournemouth Art College which is on the country's top list. The HND (2 years before the Bachelor Hons degree) are given at Salisbury College. The BA is choosable between Bournemouth or Salisbury. Masters is at Bournemouth Uni as well. Silvio DaVinci
