The ACCESS to Media course combines theoretical and practical approaches to the study of modern media technologies. It will also prepare you for Higher Education with study skills and IT. You will learn how to write features and news articles, make digital films and design and create multimedia web pages. In addition, we study and evaluate how media messages are constructed and the different ways that they shape both the world and how we make sense of it.
This is a credit-based course, and to pass you need to gain a minimum of 54 credits. These are accumulated as the year progresses, most through coursework, although examinations are also set in some subject areas. Academic and tutorial support is given throughout the course, and you will receive help and advice with your university applications through the UCAS system.
