The Media plays such an important role in our society today. This is reflected in the popularity of A Level Media Studies at an Advanced Level.
This subject will teach you about the power of media in your life. Moreover, you will learn about the impact it has on you in social, political and economic contexts. We deliver an interesting, challenging and above all enjoyable course, which will inform, enthuse and illuminate.
A Level Media Studies Facilities
Within the Media and Film departments all students have access to the computer room and classroom. For media production we use the Adobe suite which includes essential design programs such as InDesign, Photoshop and Premier Pro that enable our students to manipulate photographs, design magazine and newspaper layouts and edit video footage. The department has a range of video and still cameras and green screen facilities which students can hire when completing their productions for coursework.
Where will an A Level Media Studies course lead?
Because Media Studies develops so many skills, you are attractive to employers in a wide range of people-orientated careers. A Media Studies qualification will enable you to study Media Studies in Higher Education at degree level. However, it can contribute towards the points needed for entry to a range of other degrees in other subjects.
Students who have gained Media at Advanced Level have gone onto careers/courses in varied areas. For instance, these areas include IT, Digital Media, Media Production, Journalism, Public Relations, Business and Management to name a few.
