English and Film with Journalism, Advertising and Marketing Foundation (Sandwich) - Solent University, Southampton

Hoping to pursue a degree in advertising, journalism, marketing or PR? Do you not yet have the necessary qualifications to study at degree level? This innovative foundation year will support you to learn new skills, gain academic confidence and develop your creativity in advance of a full honours degree at Southampton Solent University. During the foundation programme, students are encouraged to explore a range of different creative disciplines before specialising in one specific area. This practical programme begins with the opportunity to work on a media-based project as part of a small team. This project helps students to see how different content elements come together to make a final outcome. By working in teams, students also develop interpersonal and project management skills. The course is delivered in a supportive environment, learning a range of academic and study management skills. These skills include independent learning, time management, academic research and critical thinking. Students are also introduced to the business of the creative industries and get a taste of the employment opportunities that are available. Learning is hands-on with an emphasis on employability skills and real situations that students might experience in the workplace. Students will also develop new practical skills to support their chosen degree. These skills include photography, film, editing, audio production, website development, digital design, media and broadcasting. Study skills seminars and tutorials teach students advanced research techniques, how to write creative and compelling text, and how to think critically. Workshops introduce students to media production, photography, script writing, communications, IT skills, investigative journalism and creative writing. During the last part of the year students will work on a final project which is directly related to the honours degree they have chosen. Successful completion of the Journalism, Advertising and Marketing foundation will provide a pathway to the English and Film (Sandwich) degree. This interdisciplinary degree will enable you to combine critical analysis of films and literary texts with various practical filming projects. Upon graduation, you may wish to pursue a career in publishing, writing, PR, advertising, TV, media, journalism, management, administration or research for film and TV. This course is also a suitable platform for those who wish to pursue postgraduate study. Southampton Solent University’s English and film students are taught these skills by a course team with expertise in screenwriting, production and directing. The academic staff are responsible for a range of published work and maintain strong ties to the industry. This course integrates critical analysis and research into film and film practice with insights into working in the film industry. This helps students develop an understanding of how films are planned, developed and creatively executed, allowing them to achieve a critical understanding of how film theory can be married to film practice. In the past, this style of learning has been facilitated by a programme of guest lectures and masterclasses delivered by professionals in the film, writing and publishing industries. Alongside these special guests, regular lectures and seminars help students to understand literature, literary genres, writing and production styles in the context of different periods of literary and film history. To help enable students study, Solent is home to a multi-million pound media academy which offers access to some of the most up-to-date media technology. Facilities include TV studios, editing suites and high-end video laboratories. Students are also able to access our on-site 3D cinema and an extensive film and television library.
