Multimedia Journalism Recordings and Review Meetings

Once you have applied for our BA (Hons) Multimedia Journalism course and have been shortlisted, you will be asked to provide a portfolio and for our three-year degree, invited to attend a portfolio review meeting which will include a two-hour activity. Your portfolio is an opportunity to show us who you are, your creative ability, and your potential.  

Hints and Tips on what we expect of your recording  

  • You can record yourself with your mobile phone, or tablet or you can use any other recording device.  
  • You could start with “Good afternoon, my name is… and here are the top stories of the day.” 
  • Do some research by listening to some examples of a news bulletin on a radio station. 

Top Tips 

  • Do you know enough about the course you have applied for? Research information about the course and visit our open days to come and speak to our staff and students
  • Ensure you have read all the guidance that has been sent to you, have you been requested to bring any additional information with you? (ID etc.)
  • You will not be asked to present certificates at your interview. Admissions will ask you for these after the interview if you are offered a place.
