Course overview

Benefits of the course

Our course covers far more than general television presenting. We equip you with the skills to write, create and report visual journalism, both for yourself and for others to present.

You will learn practical multimedia skills through weekly news days. This involves researching, writing, interviewing, presenting, reporting, self-shooting and editing content.

Your work will be supported by core journalism principles. In the final term you will make a 28-minute documentary in a team of three.

Our productions have won industry awards and been reworked for broadcast on BBC Newsnight.

Who is this course for?

If you want to become a strong and versatile visual journalist capable of working in newsrooms, producing documentaries and current affairs programmes, this programme will give you the foundation you need.

You will have an active interest in video and television, and a wide general knowledge covering lifestyle, sport and politics.

Communicating stories with moving pictures is likely to be your passion.
