Entry requirements:

Prospective students should have acquired the skills and knowledge associated with study at GCSE level and attained at least a Grade 5 in English. Prior study of the media is helpful but not essential. Clearly, an interest in the mass media will be important, but creative flair, good I.T. skills and experience in the Creative Arts (Music, Drama, Art) would be a definite advantage.
