Media lecturer is a complete snob. One of my English lecturers is new and has no idea what's going on. I'm really sad that I've picked this university, it is really segregated and I'm really disappointed. I wish I chose somewhere more friendly.
This course is worth it money-wise because we get the opportunity to use professional standard equipment. There's a thing called AV loans where we can hire equipment, such as cameras, lighting, and audio stuff for free.
The current modules are Video/Photography, Multimedia (web design), Social Media (basically make a blog and gotta do a campaign) and Audio/Radio.
Some of the lab tutors are really good, a few are just adequate.
This course opens up to a lot of different job opportunities since you are taught a range of skills in different areas of Media. In second and third year you get to choose what you want to study so that you can specialise in your field of interest.
Great course with some amazing experiences as we got to visit BBC studios and meet some filmmakers. Sometimes the lecturers were unsure of what they were doing but most of them were amazing and really supportive.
Job prospects out of uni were hard, it took me 18 months to get a job and I know many of my friends on the course were in the same situation. If you want to do media, do work experience as this will help.
