The Bradford Media School has a long and successful track record in providing courses in new media technologies, taking advantage of the up-to-date knowledge of the School’s teaching and research staff. The courses are taught as part of the University’s unique partnership with the National Media Museum, which boasts world-class resources and archives, and as part of the Yorkshire and Humber Skillset Media Academy. We are also a BBC Partner which means our students get regular opportunities to work on 'live' briefs and win BBC placements.

This one-year BA is aimed at people who have already studied for two years in the field of digital media, for example, for a Foundation Degree or an HND. It allows you to further develop your skills and knowledge of a wide range of digital media by undertaking major projects, both individually and in groups, working under the guidance of practising professionals. Alongside these projects you will have the opportunity to increase your knowledge in specific areas such as digital videography or multimedia, depending on your interests and previous experience.

This course is only available as a one-year top-up course to those who have completed, or expect to complete, an appropriate HND in digital media or similar area, plus GCSE English and Maths minimum grade C for all undergraduate courses.

Research and Knowledge Exchange
I have published research on the application of framing, space and multimodality to a variety of media texts including, news discourse, film (Allen and Goodall 2007) and Urban Screens (Allen 2008 and 2009). Lately my work has concentrated on Augmented Public Spaces and in particular the use of large-scale LED screen displays in prominent city centre locations. I develop research strategies that assist in the understanding of the medium; its impact on the urban environment; the investigation of curatorial practices and the management of artistic content.
