Students will regularly enjoy guest lectures and masterclasses, often from industry professionals currently working within the creative media industries. Student assignment work is regularly supported by advice from professional journalists, broadcasters and marketing experts. UA92 Journalism, Media and Communication students can expect enlightening visits to MediaCity, ITV News, sporting events and even a bespoke session with Gary Neville about his broadcasting career.
It is also hugely important to focus on the freelance and flexible nature of work in this sector, therefore working with respected freelance journalists and new marketing and design agencies will help you understand the exciting possibilities available in this sector. Students will get to work closely with marketing, PR and advertising agency contacts to work on live briefs and will get the opportunity to present back to industry specialists who will critique their pitches.
Further partner connections are built through the Character and Personal Development modules, as students work on projects set by a range of partners and undertake placements which build on their subject discipline and give an insight into working across subject and industry boundaries.
