During your foundation year you'll learn about digital media and journalism more broadly. By the end of this first year you’ll understand how to critically assess the media. The skills you gain in this preparatory year will prepare you for the subsequent three years of study.
The foundation year on this Media and Communications (including foundation year) (Hons) degree at London Metropolitan University is shared with a number of other media-related foundation courses, so you'll learn alongside students who are interested in different specialisms.
Following your foundation year, you will study the same course content and get the same choice of modules as those who study our Media and Communications BSc (Hons) degree. Should you wish to change your subject specialism following Year 0, there will be flexibility to do so.
