UCFB brings senior figures from organisations such as Sky, BBC, ITV, talkSPORT and governing bodies to work with our students and provide them with important insights in to how the media really works in order to supplement the teachings from UCFB’s own industry professionals and experienced media academics.The media pathways explore the many facets of media communications and develop your understanding of the interconnected relationship between industry stakeholders.
