Course Summary

Learn how to hunt down stories, then record and edit your content for TV, radio and online. Sharpen up your skills in our Broadcast Zone, which simulates a real studio.

Course description

Determined, articulate, and fascinated by current affairs and radio and television news? Learn journalism in our purpose-built Broadcast Zone, using industry-standard tech, then go out into the city to put your skills to the test.

We've invested heavily in audio and video facilities, so you'll be immersed in TV, radio and online techniques right from day one. Nurture your skills using our TV news studio and gallery, radio studios and production booths, and high-tech editing suite – all laden with the same industry-standard equipment and software used by the professionals. You'll learn how to record and edit material using our tech, and how to tell stories online. We'll show you mobile journalism techniques so you can create and publish digital content wherever you are, with some bespoke treatments for social media.

You’ll learn how to hunt down stories and develop your interview technique so you can ask the high-impact questions that matter. Our experts in media law, regulation and public administration will make sure your journalism is responsible and ethical as well as hard-hitting. On production newsdays, you'll work against the clock as part of a team that goes out into the city to find the news, shoot footage and create bulletins to meet tough deadlines back at the Broadcast Zone. It's demanding work – but that's how our students finish the degree newsroom-ready, as complete broadcast journalists.

This degree is professionally accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council, an important benchmark of quality recognised across the UK media industry.
