Presentation

ESCAC’s 240-credit, four-year Bachelor’s Degree in Cinematography offers an official university education (University of Barcelona) in line with the new European standards. The degree is pending approval by the Council of Universities.

With its own methodology based on 5 axes (learning by doing, challenge-based learning, project-based work, author-spectator and academic learning), students will learn the technique and narrative of filmmaking in order to be able to apply it to any audiovisual medium.

From the third year onwards and through optional subjects, students specialise in one of the eight disciplines taught at the school: Production, Directing, Cinematography, Art Direction, Screenwriting, Editing, Sound). In the fourth year, students develop their specialisation through the TFGs.

 

Until the 2022-2023 academic year, ESCAC has offered the 180-credit, three-year Bachelor’s Degree in Cinematography, which was positively verified by the Council of Universities on 11 July 2017. The last graduating class of this degree will complete their studies in the academic year 2024-2025. See the academic information of this degree in extinction.

TUTORIAL ACTION PLAN GRADUATE IN FILMMAKING

Final Degree Project - TFG

There are two types of Final Degree Project: collective and individual.

The collective TFG is an audiovisual work created by groups of students, each of whom acts as team leader in one of the technical and creative tasks or functions that have formed part of their learning, depending on their interests and aptitudes and the elective taken. The positions held by the students in the working groups will be: screenwriter, producer, director, art director, director of photography, editor and sound designer.
The TFGs are complete audiovisual productions (generally short films) that are developed in all their phases: pre-production, production and post-production, using the material and facilities of the centre, and under the supervision of the school’s production company, Escac Films. Each student is tutored in a way that is specific to the profession he or she is involved in the creation of the audiovisual work.

The centre has a TFG Committee, the members of which are appointed by the Board of the Centre, which has the following functions:

  • Drawing up the TFG teaching plan.
  • To determine the conditions under which the TFG must be carried out: equipment, timetable, financial endowment and other aspects related to its production.
  • Approve the project dossiers presented by the students.
  • To award each student a team leader position in one of the approved projects.
  • To assign a tutor to each student enrolled in the course.
  • Plan and schedule the conditions under which the public defence of the TFG will take place.
  • Any other function that may be assigned by the Board of the Centre.

The individual TFG is a research project, a study or report that involves an exercise that integrates the training received throughout the degree. It involves students applying the knowledge, skills, attitudes and competences acquired throughout the degree. The work can be presented in two different modalities:

1) written work on one of the subjects on the programme;
2) an audiovisual piece that develops any subject of the programme, accompanied by a report.

The TFG proposals submitted by students will be evaluated by the TFG Commission. Once accepted, the Commission will assign each student a tutor. The tutor is responsible for the guidance and supervision of the TFG. The appointment as tutor will initially entail the task of helping the student to define the TFG proposal that will have to be approved by the TFG Committee.

Subsequently, the tutor’s guidance and supervision will be directed to:

  • Delimitation of the subject and definition of the objectives.
  • Drawing up the work plan.
  • Documentary and methodological guidance.
  • Monitoring the development of the work.
  • Drawing conclusions.
  • Provision of guidelines for the defence.
  • Assessment of the process developed and the results obtained.
  • The evaluation system is part of the teaching plan of the subject.

It is the responsibility of the TFG Committee:

  • To determine the timetable and the procedure for the submission of the TFG.
  • Determine the conditions for the defence, which must be public and oral.
  • Appoint the tribunals that will have to assess the TFG, which will be made up of three lecturers, one of whom may be the one who has acted as tutor.

Internships

The external internships are professional internship activities in companies and public institutions that the students of the centre carry out during their university training. Students will carry out functions related to their learning in companies in the audiovisual sector, mainly audiovisual production companies, with which the centre has collaboration agreements.
The work placement coordinator is in charge of reviewing and updating the agreements, incorporating new centres, monitoring the development of the work placement projects in each entity and collecting the evaluation made by the centre.
The academic tutor is in charge of informing the student about the characteristics of the work placement and monitoring the activity, meeting periodically to assess the development.
The professional tutor is in charge of guiding and training the student at the work centre during the work placement period. He/she also draws up an assessment of how the student has developed his/her skills, attitudes and knowledge during the work placement.
At the end of the work placement, the student submits a report.

Quality system

The quality system of the centre takes as a reference the standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area developed by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and adopted by the European Ministers of Education in Bergen (2005), follows the guidelines established by the quality agencies Agency for the Quality of the University System of Catalonia (AQU Catalonia), the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA) and the Agency for the Quality of University Studies of Galicia (AGSUG) in the AUDIT programme and meets the requirements of the regulations established in the official university education regulations of the Ministry of Education and Science.

The centre’s quality system integrates all the activities related to the quality assurance of the bachelor’s and master’s degrees and deploys the Internal Quality Assurance System (SAIQU) as the instrument to be used both in the design phase of the courses and in the continuous monitoring of these to ensure the achievement of the objectives associated with the training, their modification, if necessary, and their accreditation (VSMA).

Consejo: si vienes de bachillerato o de CFGS preséntate a las materias específicas de la selectividad para poder ir con la nota más alta posible.
  • ¿Cuáles han sido las últimas notas de corte?
    • 2014-2015 7,91; 2015-2016 6,5; 2016-2017 6,45; 2017-2018 7,333; 2018-2019 9,264; 2019-2020 9,762; 2020-2021 9,650; 2021-2022 9,442
  • ¿Cómo funciona la Preinscripción Universitaria?
    • Puedes encontrar toda la información sobre el proceso de preinscripción universitaria en el Canal Universidad.
  • ¿Cuándo sabré si tengo plaza en el Grado?
    • Si has superado la PAP y has hecho todos los trámites de Preinscripción Universitaria y pago de la prueba correctamente, sólo tendrás que esperarte a que la Oficina de Acceso a la Universidad te asigne una plaza a nuestro Grado (según la nota de corte). La primera asignación de plazas la realizan durante la segunda semana de Julio (fechas a determinar).
  • Si finalmente me asignan plaza, ¿qué tengo que hacer?
    • Nosotros nos pondremos en contacto contigo vía correo electrónico para darte toda la información sobre el proceso de matrícula.
  • ¿Y si supero la PAP pero no me asignan plaza?
    • Si tienes la nota de corte requerida y la no asignación de plaza es a causa de alguna incidencia de documentación/vía de acceso, etc. te recomendamos que te pongas en contacto con la Oficina de Acceso a la Universidad para hacer la reclamación pertinente para poder entrar en las reasignaciones siguientes de Julio/Agosto/Septiembre. Si no tienes la nota de corte requerida para este curso, deberás intentar subir nota de cara al siguiente curso o bien esperar que la nota sea más baja. Puedes aprovechar para entrar ya a ESCAC cursando el FOUNDATION lo que te permitirá, aparte de adquirir conocimientos que seguro son un plus a tu formación, conocer a fondo el funcionamiento de la escuela y acceder a la comunidad ESCAC participando y ayudando en proyectos de cursos de Grado. Además, te ayudaremos a preparar materias de la selectividad específica para que puedas subir tu nota de acceso al Grado de cara al siguiente curso.
  • Si ya he comenzado una carrera universitaria, ¿puedo reconocer algunos créditos / asignaturas?
    • Sí, en el momento de la matrícula puedes solicitar el trámite de reconocimiento de créditos a Secretaría Académica del centro.
      Si has comenzado un grado dentro de la misma rama de conocimiento que nuestro grado (Artes y Humanidades) deberás reconocer un mínimo de 27 créditos de Formación Básica directamente.
      Si el grado que has iniciado pertenece a otra rama de conocimiento puedes pedir el estudio de reconocimiento de aquellas materias de formación básica de nuestro grado que consideres que coinciden en contenidos y competencias. El director de estudios del centro hará la evaluación correspondiente emiten una resolución al respecto. Se debe mantener el mínimo de 27 créditos objeto de reconocimiento. En las materias reconocidas se les pondrá la misma nota que tenías en el antiguo expediente.
  • Si vengo de un CFGS, ¿puedo reconocer algunos créditos / asignaturas?
    • Para el Grado en Cinematografía no tenemos ninguna correspondencia entre materias de Ciclo Formativo y materias del grado. De todos modos, si consideras que hay alguna materia que coincide en competencias y contenidos, puedes solicitar un estudio de reconocimiento a la Secretaría Académica en el momento de la matrícula para que el Director de estudios pueda valorar el caso. Si la resolución fuese positiva, en la materia reconocida se te pondría un 6 (AP).

Preguntas más frecuentes sobre sistema de pagos y descuentos

  • ¿Hay que pagar para hacer la Prueba de Aptitud Personal (PAP)?
    • Sí. En el momento de hacer la Preinscripción Universitaria a través del Portal de Acceso a la Universidad, el último paso es hacer el pago que te da derecho a examen. Recuerda que sin el pago no podremos evaluarte y por tanto, perderías todas las opciones poder acceder al grado. Tiene un coste aproximado de unos 95€ y se puede hacer el pago online directamente a través del portal una vez realizado el trámite de la preinscripción.
  • ¿Cuál es el precio del crédito?
    • Cada año a principios de julio la Generalitat publica el Decreto de Tasas donde se determina el precio del crédito universitario y otras tasas universitarias para el próximo curso. A modo informativo, el precio del crédito del curso 2021/2022 fue de 21,46 €.
  • ¿Cómo se desglosa el precio de la matrícula?
    • Una parte de FUNDACIÓN, una parte de CRÉDITOS y la otra de GASTOS DE MATRICULACIÓN.
      Ejemplo importe desglosado matrícula ordinaria = 11.350 €, CRÉDITOS = 1.287,60 €, GASTOS MATRICULACIÓN = 69,80 €, FUNDACIÓN = 9.992,60 € *

  • ¿Desgrava la Fundación?
    • Al pagar la matrícula no estás haciendo una donación sino pagando un servicio, con lo cual no es desgravable.
  • Tengo una carrera universitaria, ¿debo pagar lo mismo?

      FAMILIA NUMEROSA ESPECIAL : Descuento total (unos 1.300 € aproximados precios 20/21)
  • Si soy familia monoparental, ¿tengo descuento?
    • Según el Decreto de Tasas del 21/22, no.

    • También tendrás descuento total de la parte de créditos más gastos de matriculación.

    • A partir del día en el que se formaliza la matrícula se dan 15 días para realizar el pago. Las matrículas de 1er curso se pagan antes del 31 de julio, y las de los otros cursos (2º y 3º) se pagan en septiembre.
  • ¿Tengo que pagar la matrícula aunque haya pedido la Beca General del Ministerio?

  • El precio del crédito ordinario es el mismo que el crédito reconocido?
    • No, el precio del crédito reconocido, según el Decreto de Tasas de la Generalitat, es un 20% del precio del crédito ordinario. Durante 2020/2021 por ejemplo, el precio del crédito ordinario fue de 21,46 € y el precio del crédito reconocido por tanto de 4,29€.
