Course summary

The Foundation Year provides an opportunity to build up your academic writing skills and numeracy, and will also cover a range of subject specific content to fully prepare you for entry to an Undergraduate degree. This is an integrated four-year degree, with the foundation year as a key part of the course. You will need to successfully complete the Foundation Year to progress on to the first year of your bachelor’s degree. During your Foundation Year you will get the opportunity to talk to tutors about your degree study and future career aspirations, and receive guidance on the most appropriate Undergraduate course to help you achieve this; providing you meet the entry requirements and pass the Foundation Year.

This is the course for those who are interested in television and radio journalism. Our students have gone straight off to work with the BBC, Tristar, Incisive TV and Endemol or headed off to do Master’s degrees in London and New York. You will be taught by staff with decades worth of experience in industry and you will be producing your own news from the start. You will not only write for our own news website but you will be broadcasting the news on our community radio station RadioLab and for our TV news programme, UoB Today.

You will need a good nose for stories, a love of writing and editing and an ability to keep cool under pressure. You will also develop your powers of critical analysis, studying the ethics and the theories that underpin the industry, whilst reading the latest research. Your final assessment will be a piece of broadcast or online journalism which will show off all your skills and which could be your stepping stone to that dream first job.
