Journalism BA(Hons): Entry requirements

Entry requirements for Clearing 2018

Your ability to succeed and benefit from your course is the University's first concern in setting its entry requirements.

During Clearing each year, entry requirements for a number of courses can vary slightly and every clearing application is considered on an individual basis. Once you have your exam results, you can contact us by calling our free Clearing hotline on:

0800 0483 334*

+44 20 8328 1149 (international callers)

*Calls are free from a landline in the UK. Mobile charges may apply - please check with your provider.

The hotline has extended opening hours from 7.30am on Thursday 16 August.

When the office is closed, you can also make a clearing application directly to us by using the online form on individual course pages.

Clearing Open Day

If you would like to talk to us about your options face to face, then book yourself on to our Clearing Open Day which takes place on Saturday 18 August between 11.00am and 2.00pm. You can meet lecturers, view the facilities and talk to our friendly student finance team.

If you don't meet the above entry requirements our International Foundation Year can prepare you for entry progression onto this degree course.

English language requirements

All non-UK applicants must meet our English language requirements. For this course it is Academic IELTS of 6.5 overall with 6.5 in Writing, with special conditions in all elements. Please make sure you read our full guidance about English language requirements, which includes details of other qualifications we'll consider.

Applicants who do not meet the English language requirements may be eligible to join our pre-sessional English language course.

Applicants from one of the recognised majority English speaking countries (MESCs) do not need to meet these requirements.

Interviews, entrance tests, auditions and portfolios

For most courses a decision will be made on the basis of your application form alone. However, for some courses, the selection process may include an interview - usually held between December and April for full-time students.

The interviews may be on a one-to-one basis, in a group or with your portfolio, and you may be given a task such as participating in a workshop, a short essay, questionnaire or translation to demonstrate your strengths in addition to any formal entry requirements.
