Course summary

Face to face will start on 19th Oct but they will have until 9th Nov to join. There is a blended learning approach with access to facilities and face to face seminars and group work, but large lectures will be online, but this allows them to access learning when its suites them.

This course aims to produce graduates with skills and understanding suitable for entry level posts in all aspects of multi-media journalism content production including print, broadcast and web media. You will develop storytelling skills and learn how to make intelligent and surprising programmes that will captivate and engage audiences in a highly competitive broadcast landscape. You have a rare and unique opportunity to be matched with a BBC mentor who, alongside your tutor, will guide you through the production of a final major project. You will study in a highly professional and creative environment with access to state-of-the-art, industry-standard facilities with a rolling programme of guest lecturers, industry speakers and live collaborative projects which under-pin the real-world knowledge and entrepreneurial skills required to succeed in your career.

The course is accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council which offers valuable training, work placements, access to networking events and prepares you for work in an industry newsroom. This popular practice-based postgraduate course offers graduates a pathway into a variety of careers in the mainstream print and broadcast media, in publishing, media production, public relations and marketing, and among non-governmental organisations. The course encourages an entrepreneurial approach which opens the way to self-start media ventures and develops a range of skills appropriate to a number of careers.
