Hey,

I currently study Music Journalism at the University of Huddersfield. The level at which the journalism modules are taught within the uni are of a very high standard. Each member of staff is incredibly helpful and I personally find their methods of teaching to be engaging. The Huddersfield area is also incredibly friendly and being only a very short train journey to both Manchester and Leeds, the options for placements are incredible.

Hey,
I would say it depends on what sector of Journalism you are more interested in - if you are more interested in film/sport/news journalism then I would say Media is a good shout. However, I would also check to see the course spec of Media and RMPS because they can differ slightly in the angle they take at teaching you.
Hope that helps?
Alice

Last year I had my 1st offer (out of 4 choice) - a month after submitting my applications, but had to wait for 3 months for receiving the last choice.

Anyway I live in Portsmouth. It is a great city for student to live in.

Hi Bethia54729,

Great to hear you're looking to study at Sheffield! I just want to reassure you that it is totally normal to have not heard back from all of your universities yet. Different departments and universities will have different procedures and policies for processing applications, so you will likely receive decisions at different times from each of your choices (as GatoMessi has already said).

The UCAS equal consideration deadline has now been extended until the 29th of January, and some courses may not make any decisions until this deadline has passed. January is one of the busiest months for admissions teams, with a lot of applications to process! All of your choices must reply by a specific deadline, which you can view in UCAS Track - but many hear back before this!

If you have any other questions about studying in Sheffield just let me know! I'm a recent graduate so are happy to talk to you about my experiences. You can also message current Journalism students via our Chat to Us platform - both Ismaeel and Tansy are in their second year of BA Journalism.

Hello!

I'm happy to hear you've applied to Portsmouth We have a virtual open day this Saturday (you can book a place through this link if you are interested https://www.port.ac.uk/study/open-da...open-day-9-jan. ) where you can speak to students, look at the city, watch course talks specifically about Journalism and more!

Journalism offers are usually BBB or BBC (more info about our course is on this link https://www.port.ac.uk/study/courses/ba-hons-journalism). If you attend our open day you'll be able to speak to students studying Journalism who can give you a first hand view

As GatoMessi said, offers can take a while so sadly you just have to wait, especially as different universities will process applications differently. The UCAS application deadline has been extended (it was the 15th it's now the 29th Jan) which will possibly affect hearing back from applications.

Please don't hesitate to ask any other general or more specific questions about Portsmouth

Best of luck! Sam- Official Student Rep
