Want to write for radio and television news? We'll show you how to find stories and turn them into sharp, engaging material.
You'll shoot professional news pieces on HD TV cameras and use Apple Fine Cut X to cut rushes together. We also teach you how to create audio and video for the web and how to use social media effectively.
There are lectures, seminars, group workshops, individual and team assignments. You're assessed on essays, exams and journalism – news stories, radio and TV news items and features, web pages and portfolios.
On a three-day field trip to London, you'll visit national news organisations and meet senior editors, politicians and political journalists. Our guest lecturers come from the media, campaigning groups and research institutes. Broadcast editors run radio and television newsdays.
The annual fee for Home/EU students starting in 2015 is £7000.00.Not specified
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.
A 2:1 degree, but we will consider mature students with relevant professional experience.
Excellent writing and communication skills are essential. Good computing and word processing skills are desirable.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
University guides confirm our position as one of the UK's leading universities. The Virgin 2008 Alternative Guide to British Universities, for instance, says that “Sheffield is a top university across the board”.
