Film and Broadcast Media

Do you want to work in television or radio, or develop the technology that enables us to deliver all forms of media in the 21st century? 

From producing and editing film and radio packages to learning the technical skills needed to develop industry-standard multimedia systems, our courses will fully prepare you to be at the cutting edge of the broadcast world.

There is a strong emphasis on practical work for students to develop essential professional skills and we also encourage cross-department collaboration to replicate industry practice. For instance, Media Technology students will work alongside Journalism students on news days to produce high quality broadcast programmes.  

Periods of work experience and real-world projects are key elements of our courses to build up the skills and expertise required by today’s media industry.

Our unique location at the heart of MediaCityUK means you will be perfectly placed to tap into a network of leading media companies ranging from the BBC and ITV to experimental start-up companies. You will have many opportunities to get involved with media industry live briefs and engage with professional media companies across a number of initiatives, events and projects.

Broadcast Media also works to develop links with overseas institutions and organises at the annual Nations and Regions Media Conference where professional industry figures and academics debate contemporary issues within broadcasting and digital media in Salford.

Our Broadcast Media courses put you in a strong position to secure work in a variety of media positions, and graduates go on to become producers, directors, presenters, technical operators and system designers.
