Journalism, Film and Television Studies (Including Foundation Year) BA (Hons) (Full-time)
Why study this course?
Our Journalism, Film and Television Studies (including foundation year) BA (Hons) is ideal if you’re interested in studying how to become a journalist, as well as make and write about film and television, but don’t meet the necessary requirements to enter the standard degree.
This four-year course has a built-in foundation year, designed to equip you with fundamental skills to allow you to study at undergraduate level.
This degree combines the fields of journalism, television and film to provide you with comprehensive knowledge of media practices and theory. The Program will open many doors in both industries and improve your chances of gaining employment in the specialist area of film and television journalism.
The foundation year will equip you with study skills to review media, write essays and media copy, conduct research and critically analyse sources. You’ll also learn about fundamental practices in communications, film, television and broadcast media.
You’ll share the foundation year with students from other specialisms on a foundation year degree. This will be the perfect opportunity to learn about other disciplines and meet students outside of your course.
Throughout your degree we will support you to succeed academically and make sure you settle into university life. You’ll benefit from one-to-one sessions with your tutor, where you’ll be able to discuss your work and progress. There will also be opportunities to polish other skills, such as essay writing or critical analysis, via workshops offered by the University.
After the foundation year you’ll join students enrolled on our Journalism, Film and Television Studies BA (Hons). You’ll study the same modules as these students and upon graduation you’ll receive the same award.
If you decide that you’d like to specialise in a different discipline after the foundation year, there will be some flexibility to allow you to do this.
In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:
- At least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
- English Language at grade C/4 or above (or equivalent, eg Functional Skills at Level 2) – if you meet UCAS points criteria but obtained a grade D/3 in English at GCSE you may be offered a University test in this area
