Learning from lecturers who have worked with the likes of WWF, HSBC and Fred Perry, you’ll develop the expertise you need to create communications campaigns across digital, social, TV and print media. Video-making, copywriting and more are taught alongside the strategic planning skills that are needed to succeed in the modern workplace, a combination that makes this course ideally suited to ambitious young professionals keen to get ahead in their chosen career.
You will have access to facilities described by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council as among the very best in the country – our Media Centre includes professional-standard film, TV, music and news studios as well as editing suites, Mac equipment and production galleries.
As well as benefitting from our lecturers’ professional experience and contacts, you can gain insight from our large network of alumni, with former students returning for guest lectures covering many subjects including celebrity, sport, agency, and NGOs.
