Each of five modules is assessed independently. All modules carry 30 credits except the Dissertation by Practice, which carries 60 credits. There are no exams. Coursework is comprised of independent proposal and project, portfolio of journalism, case study, audit of magazines, seminar presentation, essays.

Relevance to work/profession
The independent project may be connected to your existing, professional work this to be agreed in discussion with programme tutor.

Thesis/Dissertation/project work
The independent project or dissertation is a key part of masters level education, hence it carries twice the credit rating of other modules.

Students whose first language is not English should normally have achieved a score of 7.0 in IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or equivalent.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
