Meet our students

Our journalism courses focus on the practical skills you need to work in the industry. You will be taught by former journalists and work with guest editors from the industry. You will learn to gather and write news stories, but you will also be taught how to reach difference audiences and deliver your story across multiple media platforms. That’s why we are among only 32 universities in the UK to be accredited by the British Journalism Teaching Council (BJTC) to deliver industry-standard journalism teaching. You will be joining an active community of enthusiastic and friendly would-be journalists learning how to tell news stories in any medium; from websites to magazines and TV to podcasts, and we can’t wait to welcome you.

To tell compelling stories, you need a range of media production techniques. Our media production courses will teach you all the production skills you need, whether you have a broad interest across all mediums or would like to specialise in Television and Film. You will explore and debate complex ideas and theories.

We will provide all the equipment you need to tell the stories that really matter to you. You will have access to leading industry-standard facilities on campus, including black box studios, a dedicated newsroom, multi-camera TV studios, editing suites and a fully equipped radio studio. We also ensure that our dedicated team of specialist technicians are on hand to support you with your work.
