As part of your studies, you’ll complete a minimum of 120 hours’ work placement in industry, drawing on the course team’s contacts to gain positions at national magazines and newspapers, major broadcasters including the BBC and Sky, the trade press, public relations agencies, independent radio stations and news websites. The course also has a number of work experience agreements with organisations such as Hampshire Cricket, Shoot! magazine, Winchester City FC, Gosport Borough FC, M&Y News, Crawley Town FC and LaLiga News.
Previous students have also used the skills learned on the course to obtain their own work placements/experience at BBC local radio, Associated Press, Absolute Talk Radio, Watford FC, and national and regional newspapers.
All lecturers still work in the industry for organisations such as Sky Sports, BBC Sport, ITV Sport and national newspapers, helping students to stay up-to-date with media trends.
We also offer a regular programme of guest speakers from industry, providing you with first-hand advice and experience.
