This degree demonstrates a broad range of powerful and flexible communication skills which can be used in many news and media related careers. They encourage you to adopt professional working practices, using social media and being part of a thriving online journalism community where you can learn directly from and talk to professionals who are at the top of their game. The practical strand of the degree will equip you with all the skills you need to work in the fastpaced, technology-driven world of the news media, to tell stories on different platforms, and to source, research and compile articles. The academic strand gives you insight into the historical, political and economic context of today's news environment, alongside the technological and business issues which impact on the day-to-day work of journalists.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my university course, the content is uptodate and business issues are addressed. The flexibility of the course allowed me to take my placement year after my first or second year which was helpful, considering the fact I was still unsure of what I wanted to do after my first year. It gave me the opportunity to learn first hand hotel operations, in a five star hotel in Antigua. An incredible and priceless opportunity. I learnt a number of skills I will take with me upon graduation.

The overall study period is a great pleasure and exciting as you learn new skills and knowledge about different aspects of science. It enables one to explore different modules, which gives everyone a chance to enhance and enjoy. With assignment and examination modules it allows pupils to show capability of both exam based and assignment based examination methods.

The course covers a lot of subjects. As well as learning about the event industry it teaches students about marketing, sponsorship, law and human resources just to name a few. The teachers on the course are very experienced and have a lot of knowledge of the industry.

There are 6 modules to complete each year (3 per semester) which are generally assessed through either presentations, essays or exam. Normally there will be two of each of these things per semester.

The best parts of the degree are that there is the option to participant in a placement year (year in industry) and to study abroad. I did both of these things and worked at two of the largest venues in London for my placement and study in the Gold Coast Australia.

It's an enjoyable course!

Although the course can often seem disorganised it but having got to my final year it appears that everything falls into place. The degree itself is so versatile and allows you to go into most career paths your like.

I thoroughly enjoy the course I am on, it's engaging and super interesting! One of the highs of the course is the list of elective modules on offer as they cater for everyone and they are really interesting and enjoyable. The tutors are very helpful and provide many links to enhance learning from lectures or seminars and are always willing to stick around after a lecture has finished to answer any questions or to have a chat about anything. They always have office hours available too which you can choose to have dedicated time about any issues. All staff are very enthusiastic and have massive personalities which makes everything much more engaging and overall they are very kind and down to earth whilst remaining professional!

The politics course is very well structured and the teaching style is great. There's the opportunity to always further yourself and get involved. Personally I prefer the assessment structure being mainly coursework as I tend to panic in exams, but there's a nice balance between the two, meaning that you aren't constantly worrying about coursework deadlines. The staff are always on hand to help out wherever they can and I'm extremely happy to study at Leeds Beckett.

My degree is excellent. Every lecturer has in an incredible amount of knowledge not just on the subject, but on life surrounding the subject. The university itself is brilliant. Every day there is a great atmosphere surrounding the University and I am very happy to choose Leeds Met (Beckett). Both campuses, headingley and city, have an incredible amount of equipment that can be found in the real world. To my degree I am allowed to use studios whenever I want which benefits my degree, and my personal band and project. Overall I feel that Leeds Met is one of the best uni's in the country.
