Our foundation degree in Sports Media* is designed to develop you into an industry-ready individual with an exceptional understanding of the sports media industry. You’ll spend your time working with a wide range of platforms and technologies to create professional sports media content. With strong working links with local professional sporting teams for whom we’ve created a wide range of content, from interview packages to highlight reels. Further afield we have travelled across the country in pursuit of a good story, covering a wide range of sports, from football and rugby union to golf and motor racing. From our WISE campus equipped with tv studio, media suites, editing bays and state-of-the-art broadcast facilities, previous students have had the opportunity to live-stream international under-18 rugby games, matches in the Women’s Super League and have had the opportunity to interview sports heavyweights from Graham Taylor to Andy Robinson. This flexible two year degree programme, involving both workshop and project-based exploration, will help you to acquire the skills that equip you for a range of employment contexts, enabling you to take control of your career. Each of the project-based modules is rooted within a live commission or competition and will have a published outcome – one that will invite and encourage dialogue with the local and national sports media scene and beyond. *Subject to Validation
