Hello,

Firstly it is amazing to see that you are interested in studying broadcast journalism at the University of Salford. I am a recent graduate of the same course so I believe I can help with your questions.

The only exam I sat was during the first year of the course, it was based on journalistic law, and you would need to pass this exam in order to continue your study into second year. This, however, is not as scary as it sounds as you are taught everything you need to know and have plenty of time to study and revise.

Apart from that exam, other assessments would consist of essays, presentations, or coursework. For the Broadcast Journalism course, a lot of the work you are assessed on is practical work, such as radio and TV packages that you will make throughout second and third year.

It is worth noting that optional modules that I did not pick may have exams attached to it, I am only going off my own experiences of the course and the optional modules I picked. Either way, I know this course leans a lot more towards assessing practical work then times exams.

I hope this does help and If you have any questions in the future do not hesitate to get in touch.
