This course will cover the many different aspects of journalism and publishing in the magazine industry - whether it's fashion, lifestyle or music - culminating in your final project and dissertation.
During your course, you'll have the opportunity to study abroad for part of your second year. To find out more about studying abroad as part of your course please see the Study Abroad section.
If you opt to complete a professional practice year, this will take place in year three. You will undertake a placement within the creative industries to further develop your skills and CV.
While on the Professional Practice Year, you will be required to pay a reduced tuition fee for that year. This fee will be determined using government funding regulations. Based on current regulations, we expect this to be a maximum of 20% of the tuition fee rate that you are charged for your second year of study. You will also incur additional travel and accommodation costs during this year. The University will provide you with further advice and guidance about this as you approach your Professional Practice Year.
