The direction course at the Film and Television Direction Department lasts 5 years and prepares the students for the job of film director. The students are also trained to work in television and theatre.

During their studies, the students acquire a complete knowledge of the profession and the artistic skills necessary to work as a professional film director, but most of all they are stimulated to develop themselves as individual artists. Within the scope of the direction course, the students make six short films (three documentaries and three fiction films) under the artistic supervision of their professors who are professionally active filmmakers. Some of the films can be made on 35mm film stock .

It is a five year long consolidated course. On graduation, the student having presented a diploma film and a thesis is granted an MA degree.
