Course summary

Solent’s foundation year in media offers students a stimulating introduction to both the study of media and the production of media content.The Foundation Year in Media provides you with the opportunity to develop technical, creative and academic skills across a range of media platforms including graphic design, video production, digital photography and blogging. You will be encouraged to situate your own media production within established traditions and styles whilst beginning to identify your own storytelling voice and signature style. You will lastly be introduced to the significance of the creative industries within the UK economy and will be encouraged to begin positioning yourself within this growing and exciting, but competitive sector.Understanding that students are joining the Foundation Year from a range of previous experiences, the course is specifically designed to acclimatise students to the university experience. For the first six weeks you will study just one unit ‘Belonging’ which is delivered intensively by the teaching team and is tailored to help build a sense of course community and ease you into university life. Thereafter units are added so that by the second semester the Foundation structure reflects the experience you can expect on the media-related degree programme of your choosing.Face-to-face academic support is available throughout, and is complemented by 24/7 access to the University’s virtual learning environment.
