Determined, articulate, and fascinated by current affairs? Learn journalism in our Broadcast Zone, using industry-standard tech, then go into the city to film and record – and put your skills to the test on production newsdays, working with a team to hit tough deadlines for the bulletins you create.
We’ll prepare you for the multimedia environment by teaching you how to create audio and video for the web and how to use social media effectively.
There are lectures, seminars, group workshops, individual and team assignments.
You’re assessed on essays, examinations and practical broadcast journalism – producing news stories, radio and TV news items and features, web pages and portfolios.
