Quality teaching

You are allocated a personal tutor to help you plan and manage your learning, becoming an increasingly confident and independent learner as you progress through your course.

On Campus
Our students collaborate with a uniquely strong and supportive network of staff: leading theorists, the top-ranked technicians in the UK, and among the highest proportion of nationally and internationally lauded practice-based lecturers in the country. This is bolstered by equipment and facilities—TV and radio studios, a purpose-built newsroom, editing suites, and rooms full of industry-standard kit—that we make freely and continually available to all students, even (especially) if they want to pursue a project beyond the formal bounds of their academic work.

What underpins all of this is an ethos of individual attention, accessibility, and dialogue between students and staff. On our programmes, the teaching timetable is just the starting point for a much more expansive and fulfilling process.


Off Campus
An important aspect of all our work is the opportunity you have to undertake live projects through our close working relationships with local and national media organisations. We have a formal partnership with the BBC, which enables you to work with a variety of BBC departments regionally and nationally as part of your coursework. You will also benefit from our special relationship with Channel 4, who have adopted us as their chosen Media Academy, from our partnership with the Trinity Mirror newspaper group, and from our links with creative arts organisations. The work we do with a range of other partners, from small independent film companies to national newspapers, PR companies and digital communications agencies provides you with access to real-world experiences and real-world contacts.
