Applicants are required to hold a minimum of 2 x A-level or equivalent qualifications (e.g. 2 x BTEC National Subsidiary Diplomas) and we accept all A-level subjects, including Critical Thinking, General Studies and own-language A-levels.

If you are a mature student, your application will be considered on its individual merits and work or other professional experience may be taken into consideration in lieu of other published requirements.
Additional entry requirements
We will look for evidence within your application of good general knowledge, especially of current affairs and/or a specialist field of journalism; evidence of key skills such as team working or problem solving; knowledge of British and/or global media markets; and knowledge of communities and an understanding of the importance of inclusivity. If you have any relevant work experience or experience in blogging or tweeting, please also include a reference to this in your personal statement.

The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
