Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Media and Communications (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 media practice and communications theory, this degree covers a broad spectrum of critical perspectives on the media, and will introduce you to a range of contemporary media practices. You will study in one of the UK's and the world's top media and communications departments. You'll be taught by leading names in media, communications and cultural studies. We concentrate on high quality lectures and small group work, and all our teaching takes place on one purpose'built site. On practice modules you'll be taught by industry professionals engaged in TV, film, journalism, radio, photography, scriptwriting, short fiction, illustration, interactive media and animation. You'll have access to industry'standard practice facilities, including TV/film, radio and photography studios, digital video and audio editing suites, and animation software and hardware. Our close links to the media industry bring you into regular contact with media professionals. You will have the opportunity to apply for an internship in the media as part of the course. We regularly host debates and talks by international figures in media and cultural research and the media industry; recent guests have included Danny Boyle, Gurinder Chadha and Noel Clark.
