The course has given me opportunity’s to make great things in lesson but I with COVID and my personal issues I couldn’t work well in COVID situations and therefore the only course material lacked hugely to where now I feel cheated as my first year was full of the sentiment “first year doesn’t count” second year had the ball dropped just as we were about the do the bulk of work to show for our learning that left me feeling underprepared and under-experienced entering an empty and not at all worth the money third year

I joined TV and Radio specifically for the radio aspect, and was annoyed that I had to wait until January to start it. I feel like for the TV aspect I did not learn anything I didn't learn in college (i did a media btec) and the teachers didn't properly teach us how to use the equipment before sending us out to film. Most of this course has been me teaching myself how to do stuff rather than them teaching me.

It points you in the right direction but you’re not guaranteed a job

Film Studies, BA Hons

By member631945 On 2nd June 18

I did film production* and the course was interesting, apart from the fact that I'd already learnt the whole first year syllabus in college already so it was a bit of a drag. People on the course were sometimes very difficult to work with and tutors often did nothing about it so marks were dragged down because of someone else's lack of effort. Tutors went on strike for 5 weeks leading up to the easter break so we missed 5 weeks worth of teaching and did not get refunded for the teaching we were paying for. Lost a lot of money just to sit in my flat for 5 weeks doing nothing and ended up being broke by the end of the year. Some tutors were quite useless and often gave you false information about the assignments. But it was an interesting course nevertheless and if you want to learn more about the industry as well as create films I would recommend the course.

This course is absolutely brilliant and I'd say if you want to television or radio you'd have to be a idiot to choose any other university with the BBC and ITV on Salfords doorstep.

By member922029 On 28th April 16

Had a second awful experience studying at Salford as I had to do another group work compulsory presentation and my original partner dropped out and then my next partner dropped out not long after so I emailed the teacher regarding this about a month and a bit ago now and I've had no response so far and no assistance or help. Hate the place can't wait to start at man met in September.

The course in a whole is good but you have a lot of free time to self study. In the first year it is very basic but in second and third year you get to choose which subjects you would like to do so you can really tailor your education to you dependant what your future prospects are in terms of life and jobs.

It was advertised as something it is not. There is no help from tutors and course content is poor with no job prospects after graduation.
