Assessment for Year 1

Assessment is based mostly on evaluation of your practical work: reporting, writing, interviewing and news production. At times you will work, and be assessed, collaboratively. There is an element of essay writing which follows academic norms, but primarily you will be expected to produce publishable works of accurate, balanced journalism which comply with ethical and legal standards as practiced in the industry. In your second year, you will be examined on media law and regulation, and satisfactory performance in that exam is a requirement for graduation. 

Over the course, students shall be required to maintain a personal log, recording their successful completion of various journalism and production tasks, which will each be signed-off by a member of the teaching staff.

Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

At UEA we do consider a combination of qualifications for entry, provided a minimum of three qualifications are taken at a higher Level. In addition some degree programmes require specific subjects at a higher level. 

Students for whom english is a foreign language

Applications from students whose first language is not English are welcome. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading): 

  • IELTS: 7.5 overall (minimum 7.5 in all components)

We also accept a number of other English language tests. Please click here to see our full list

 

INTO University of East Anglia  

If you do not yet meet the English language requirements for this course, INTO UEA offer a variety of English language programmes which are designed to help you develop the English skills necessary for successful undergraduate study: 

Interviews

If your application tells us that you're capable and enlivened by your chosen course, we will invite you to a one-to-one online interview with one of our experienced journalists. This is a chance to meet us, discuss the course and tell us about your interest in Journalism, giving you a taste of what it would be like to study it here at UEA. You'll be asked to talk about your favourite news programme, for example, and what kind of articles you'd enjoy writing, and you'll also have the chance to talk about your current studies, extra-curricular interests and what excites you about being a journalist.  

Gap year

We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year.  We believe that a year between school and university can be of substantial benefit. You are advised to indicate your reason for wishing to defer entry on your UCAS application. 

 

Intakes

This course is open to UK and International applicants. The annual intake is in September each year.
