The practice side is good but as a whole a degree like Media and Communications has a poor reputation amongst employers. Pick a subject you actually like and approach a career in the media through placements and extracurricular activities.
The balance of theory and practical is really nice to have and the professors are some of the top minds in the field. I don't know about other specialisations but the radio facilities and department are incredible. My personal tutor last year was a guy who called me in for one meeting in person just to tell me I had to contact someone else in the department. But I've also had friends who love their personal tutors so maybe it's luck of the draw.
