This course is highly vocational and our students often progress into industry jobs before graduating. The award has full accreditation from the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) and students are also able to take the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) core exams.
You will work with a team of top journalists and academics. The two main tutors each have over twenty-five years experience of working in the broadcast industry, working for the UK’s largest broadcasters – the BBC and ITV.

You will learn how to self-shoot and edit a TV package, how to present on television and radio and how to operate as a multimedia journalist. You will also be taught how to write news pieces and then present them on TV, radio and online; how to report, how to interview, how to use a TV camera and how to produce and direct in a studio.
The latest industry-standard equipment is used and stories relating to events in the local community, national politics, international affairs, sports news and celebrity gossip are all covered. Recent graduates work at Sky, MTV, BBC, ITV and on radio.
