Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Media and Sociology (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree.

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. This interdisciplinary degree gives you the opportunity to explore sociological and communications theories alongside media practice, and to develop a critical analysis of media, communications and culture from historical and contemporary viewpoints. You'll be taught by some of the leading names in media, communications, cultural studies and sociology ' we write the books that are on your reading lists because they've actively shaped these disciplines. 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. You'll develop the practical and transferable skills that you can apply in the work place ' our recent graduates are now working as news readers, editors, journalists, producers and photographers. We regularly host debates and talks by international figures in media and cultural research; recent guests have included Danny Boyle, Gurinder Chadha and Noel Clark. We're ranked third in the UK for the quality and impact of our media research (Research Excellence Framework), which means that by studying in the department you'll be working alongside academics who are leaders in their fields.
