Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Anthropology and Media (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. Bringing together anthropological theories and ethnographic studies with communication theories and media practice, this degree provides you with an understanding of cultural diversity and a critical knowledge of communication processes. We offer a fresher approach to anthropology than the 'traditional anthropology' taught at other institutions. You'll be able to explore concepts of 'culture' and 'communication' in relation to issues of cultural difference, symbolism and representation and be taught by some of the leading names in media, communications and cultural studies. You will have the chance to develop two areas of media practice of your choice, including journalism, photography, TV production, illustration, animation, radio or creative writing and have access to industry'standard practice facilities. We regularly host industry debates and talks by international figures; recent guests have included Danny Boyle, Gurinder Chadha and Noel Clark.
