Digital News & Media
Why choose Digital News & Media?
Our dynamic Digital News & Media programme gives the students confidence and proficiency in the skills required to produce digital media and news in all forms.
At the heart of our programme is professional practice. From the start, students develop practical skills by writing, filming, editing and presenting news pieces. Students learn to use and operate radio and TV studio equipment used for broadcasting, live streaming and podcasting.
A product of their hard work is Buckingham News, a news platform incorporating websites, video bulletins and podcasts.
The programme has strong focus on content creation, including both graphic and digital design, branding, advertising, filmmaking, photography, data visualisation as well as social media and influencing.
You will be taught by experts in their relative fields. Most of the tutors are still active practitioners in media.

We have strong links with local industry and charities, including MK Dons, MK Lightning, Buckingham Athletic, Ripple Africa and several others.
When you graduate you can work as journalist, reporter, content creator, editor, proof-reader, designer, social media specialist, PR specialist, YouTuber or streamer, marketing specialist, copywriter or market researcher.
Many of our alumni work at BBC, ITV, Independent, Mail Online, Aftenposten (Norway), 10 Downing Street, Department for Culture, Media & Sport, Reach plc, Mercedes Petronas and many others.
