Birmingham School of Media

Home to a range of fantastic, industry-standard facilities and our Huffpost Centre for Journalism, Birmingham School of Media produces critical media makers who can contribute to the industry from day one. You’ll ‘make’ and you’ll ‘do’, but you’ll also question ‘why’ and ‘how’ your work fits into the world around you. You’ll learn to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing media landscape.

Our focus is on making you industry-ready. That means becoming a media professional from day one, whether in the classroom or in one of the exciting work placements available through our School of Media JobBook.
