University of Salford unveils MediaCity courses

The University of Salford has today released the list of 39 undergraduate and postgraduate courses which will be taught at MediaCityUK from the next academic year (2011/12).

The list includes technology-based courses such as the BSc Digital Broadcast Technology and the MSc Audio Production. Media courses will also be taught and will feature guest lecturers from major media organisations in journalism, animation and TV documentary making.

The list includes four new courses: an MA Digital Performance, an MA Cinema Distribution and Exhibition, an MSc Public Health and Digital Media and an MSc Media Management.

The new facility will enable students to gain experience of working in a realistic industry environment. This will include student camera operators, producers and scriptwriters collaborating on projects to deliver a 'newsroom' atmosphere that prepares them for the world of work.

University of Salford Vice-Chancellor, Professor Martin Hall said: "The courses which we'll be teaching at MediaCityUK will give Salford students an experience like no other.

"World class facilities and a huge industry hub on the doorstep mean that students on these courses will have the best possible start to their careers in media."

University of Salford visiting professor and chief executive of Ten Alps, Alex Connock, said: "If you want a career in the media, you want to be as close as possible to the professionals, so that you can see their work and they can see yours. Salford, from next year, will be a superb opportunity to do just that."

Around 1,500 students will be taught at MediaCityUK, with most of the courses entirely based there. Other courses will be based elsewhere on Salford Quays and, for some modules, will use existing facilities on the main campus. Students will begin moving to the building from 2011, as courses move to the site from the first semester.

The new University of Salford building is next to the BBC buildings and the Pie Factory Studios. It comprises 103,000 sq feet and will include facilities for teaching and research, such as HD TV Studios and a digital media and performance lab.
