Press Club visit to BCU media suite

Networking night is back on the Press Club programme – but this month it’s a different format from that of our traditional “First Thursday” event. Instead, we’ll be taking a close look at the state-of-the-art facilities being used by next-generation journalists and broadcasters who are studying at Birmingham City University. 

The University’s School of Media is a recognised centre of excellence in providing media education in the UK and we’ll be able to find out why it is held in such high regard when members visit BCU on 19 March (6.30 pm start).

Sarah Jones, who is head of the School of Media, said: “We are pushing the boundaries of media practice and research and through a range of courses, we are redefining media landscapes. Students come here to study journalism, film, media production, media communication, PR and music industries. They graduate with core media skills - but with an edge and flair allowing them to adapt in an ever-changing media landscape.”

More than 400 students enrol every year with the School of Media, which is based at the university’s city centre campus, Millennium Point.

If you would like to visit the School of Media (Post code: B4 7XG) please e-mail Press Club vice-chairman Fred Bromwich at fred.bromwich@btinternet.comto reserve your place.
