University of Chichester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The aim of the course is to give students a real insight into the world of sports media. Students study the history of media coverage of sport, reflect on the cultural and social significance of sport, explore interdependent relationships between sport and the media, and examine sports communication in the digital landscape. A significant focus is invested in hands-on experience of working in sports media production. You're part of a vibrant community of people interested in sport and the media and together we will work on building your skill sets in particular specialisms be that reporting, producing, camera operations, directing, editing, presenting, marketing or working with social media for instance. You will develop as researchers, analysts and communicators and acquire important skills in storytelling. Regular coverage of university sport will emulate professional practice and afford students opportunities to develop skills highly valued by graduate employers. Running their own TV show that shapes sport content will arm our students with an understanding of production, post-production and studio production. In their final year students will engage in a range of independent and group projects and experience working with client-led sports media productions and commissions. Such enterprises will equip students with necessary skills regarding self-promotion, networking, career portfolio management and ways to showcase talent.

English language requirements
The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
