The four-year extended degree, which includes a foundation year (Year 0), provides the background necessary for degree level study and is aimed at those who do not have the required qualifications for entry on to a traditional undergraduate degree. The course will engage your interest in a range of issues within social sciences and humanities and will provide an exciting and stimulating environment. You'll learn about the many forms of communications and mass media that impact our lives today. We'll focus on improving your academic and study skills, boosting your confidence and unlocking your potential during your foundation year. This will provide an excellent base for developing higher level knowledge within a more specific subject field in your subsequent three years of study where you'll develop your media production skills.
