Journalism exists to enlighten and, at its best, speaks truth to power. The world of media is in constant flux: traditional notions of journalism are being challenged by technology and by political and economic forces that pay lip-service to accountability. As an undergraduate on the BA in Journalism combined honours degree you will come to an understanding of the impact of these changes and, more importantly, develop your skills and your frame of reference to enable you to create first-class journalism in this changing environment.

Teaching is carried out through a combination of lectures supported by seminars and tutorials. A key feature of the Buckingham teaching method is the use of small tutorial groups which provide the most effective means of ensuring that the students benefit from the academic expertise at their disposal. It is also the philosophy of Buckinghamâs faculty to be available to students outside the scheduled tutorial times and to encourage good working relationships between staff and students.
Media courses at the University of Buckingham offer students small student: tutor ratios with a dedicated media lab at their disposal. The work is production-based, allowing students to graduate from the programme with a portfolio to present to potential employers.
This can include press journalism (news stories, features, interviews), a website (created by the student as part of the Online Media module), video and sound packages for TV / Radio Journalism (for Journalism minors) or an advertising campaign (Media Studies minors).
Students also learn to use industry-standard software including InDesign, Photoshop and Final Cut Pro as well as DV cameras and digital still cameras.
The assessment of individual modules within each course varies according to the subject. Assessment is usually by examination, assessed coursework, or a combination of the two.
Application deadline details:
A great small town, with the markets a definite highlight - they are a great opportunity to get bargain stuff for your flat, The locals are very friendly, and you'll definitely get to know everyone - the social life is quite intimate, think of it a bit like a giant 6th form rather than the typical university experience. The SU holds a lot of great events throughout the year, so there's loads to do.

So far its great. I also think that the semesters are well thought. Since recession summerjobs are not readily available for international students in the UK and I really don't want to waste four months of my year in doing nothing.
