Working with graduates and academics from world leading colleges, we aim to provide a series of exciting, informative and yet approachable courses backed by actual research and based on quality academia.

These courses may act as a bedrock to build from, they may help you decide to undertake a degree or further research, or maybe you just have a  general interest in the subject. Either way I hope you can enjoy the courses as much as we have making them.

I set up my London based company, Filmbright, in 2012, to help world leading universities and colleges provide high quality e-learning materials to their students.
