This Media Studies and Production With Foundation Year course from Bangor University, will equip you with a solid grounding in the technical and practical skills required to make you a sought-after professional in these fields. 


Media plays an important role in reflecting, influencing and even shaping modern life and can be world-changing. 

This exciting Media Studies and Production With Foundation Year degree from Bangor University, spans the breadth of Media Studies, including: television and radio, film and video, digital media, journalism, public relations and media practice. Skills and techniques learnt during the study and production of audio-visual material lie at the core of many of the key areas in the creative industries.


As well as developing an understanding of media production and the context behind this, students will be practising a number of highly desirable transferable skills. Our students have therefore progressed to careers in areas such as the creative industries, and the creative media in particular, education and the public sector, and marketing and public relations. 

Several graduates go on to develop their work further with us through a period of postgraduate study, where once again the School offers a combination of critical and creative approaches to the study of media and media practice.

Programme Structure

Courses included:

  • You will be attending lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops and viewing sessions, and undertaking both practical and theoretical tasks.
  • Media Practice modules focus on three main areas: film and TV production, radio production and digital media more generally. 
  • Practical modules will be assessed both on the practical output and on the individual’s ability to reflect critically on their practice.
  • Modules on the history and influence of the media, and media culture, are assessed by examinations and assignments, but assessment methods will vary according to the modules that have been chosen.
