MediaCityUK houses our journalism centre, which includes a TV studio, newsroom, radio studio and editing gallery. Here, our journalism students produce digital content across multiple channels, developing and honing their reporting and content production skills.
There’s also our digital performance lab - an experimental performance and lecture space, perfect for showcasing computer gaming, animation and dance and equipped with one of the largest HD screens in Europe.
In addition to two HD TV studios, one with five cameras and one with three cameras, we have a green screen area equipped with cameras that can turn the studio into a 3D digital environment. This allows us to achieve effects like those seen on weather reports and children’s television. These facilities are industry-standard, and are regularly used by the BBC and other media organisations.
There is a regular bus service that runs between our Peel Park and Frederick Road campuses and MediaCityUK on which students can travel for free, simply by showing their University ID card.
