Learn a wide array of the skills you’ll need for a rewarding career in the media on one of the UK’s longest running media degree courses. Our BA (Hons) Media and Communication course mirrors the workflow of the industry, offering practical, professional preparation for a rewarding career. This course is based in Birmingham City University's £62 million Parkside facility - one of the biggest university media centres in the UK. Helped by strong links with many influential media organisations, the course offers an industry-relevant blend of production, theory and professional studies. Teaching takes place in environments where you gain most, such as radio, TV and photography studios, editing suites, computer suites, as well as lecture theatres, seminar rooms, social learning spaces and online. You will use blogs and employ social media channels along with other interactive media to support your work and self-development to become a thinking media worker. Professional Placement Year This course offers a professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, between the second and third years of your degree, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. The University will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. If you do not find a suitable placement, you will be automatically transferred back to the standard, non-placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year. For details, visit the course page on the Birmingham City University website.
