Program description

Media and Communications (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Media and Communications (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree is the perfect route into higher education if you want to work in media but don't have the necessary qualifications for an undergraduate degree. This four-year degree will give you the skills and working practices needed to start your career in the exciting and ever-evolving world of media.

During your foundation year you'll learn about digital media and journalism more broadly. By the end of this first year you’ll understand how to critically assess the media. The skills you gain in this preparatory year will prepare you for the subsequent three years of study.

The foundation year on this course is shared with a number of other media-related foundation courses, so you'll learn alongside students who are interested in different specialisms.

Following your foundation year, you will study the same course content and get the same choice of modules as those who study our Media and Communications BSc (Hons) degree. Should you wish to change your subject specialism following Year 0, there will be flexibility to do so.

As you progress through the course you’ll learn about how media affects society from a cultural and political perspective. The forms of media you'll be focusing on include the press, television, film, the internet, popular music and social media.

You'll benefit from tutors who are experienced researchers as well as insights from industry experts. Learning from current media professionals will ensure that you graduate with the skills and techniques widely used in the industry. You’ll also have regular opportunities to visit educational places such as London Film Festival and British Board of Film Classification.

You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.

  • 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)
