Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

If you have the potential to study at degree level, but you don’t meet the entry requirements, a foundation year can help bridge the gap – laying the groundwork for entry into Year 1.

The units you’ll study are designed to build your confidence and bring you up to speed for the rest of your chosen degree. As well as the Academic Practice units, which help develop your study skills for learning at the degree-level, you’ll also do three humanities units. Once you have successfully passed your Foundation Year you will progress directly onto Year 1 of your linked honours degree.

COURSE INFORMATION

All Humanities Foundation Year students study the Academic Practice 1 and 2 units which will help you to develop the academic and study skills required for degree-level work. You will also study topics in Approaches to Film and Media Studies, Modern Britain Since 1945 and Understanding the Language of Culture.

Teaching is delivered via a range of methods including lectures, seminars, tutorials and, where appropriate, practical workshops, PC lab sessions, and online learning.

Successful completion of the Foundation Year guarantees automatic progression onto Year 1 of the degree you have chosen to study.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Successful completion of the Foundation Year guarantees automatic progression into Year 1 of your chosen linked degree.

Graduates of BA (Hons) Film and Media Studies develop a number of transferable skills well suited to a broad range of graduate employment opportunities. Possible roles include those in film and media, programme development for television and radio, teaching and journalism. Manchester is an ideal location with links to the professional media bodies in the North West, including HOME, Grimmfest, BBC Manchester and Granada Studios.
