Diversity and the media MA
Oxana
United Kingdom, Graduate
University of Westminster
4.0/5
Overall
Specifically, this course was very intensive and theoretical, because it combined two specialties - media studies and sociology. This is very cool, because in a short time, in about 6 months of study, I managed to learn a lot. They give a lot of recommendations regardings literature, which can be useful in the future also. In general, all the teachers were reading quite interesting lectures, as they were visiting lecturers with strong practical knowledge. We had to do many assignments, but this is more like a plus because, in the end, you are getting organised  and punctual, you don't simply get your piece of paper with scores but you become very responsible, and intelligent person, who is able to work with tight deadlines as well as be resistant to very stressful environment.  On the other hand, it might be very difficult for those who are even very diligent but do not have that level of English or studied previously like only fundamentals in media or sociology, trust me, this is not enough. I would not advise such a course for this kind of people. At the beginning of the course, you basically have 2 weeks to change your mind and transfer to another course, so about 5 people did it because initially, they expected the course would be easier so far. Overall, the course is fine, in fact, after so many different modules and assignments, the guys started to work in different mediums besides inclusive journalism,  like sociology (for example me), social practice, even politics and work with international organizations, or even marketing and social campaigning. Still, being an overseas student I got a distinction. The course is very much like a philosophical one when you basically do it for your satisfaction and gaining a lot of knowledge that presumably you won't be able to incorporate into your real life.

Pros
Very theoretical course, for me its a huge plus as I adore reading and writing a lot, especially academic essays, analysis or conducting research
Cons
Too difficult, teachers don't help, I would say AT ALL. In general it's because masters have to study on there own. So if you're not ready, do not even try. Another minus is that you don't get any practice because it's obviously theoretiical course

Overall
As I am a student at the University of Westminster, I can easily review about the opportunities they provide their students to achieve higher in terms of education. In May 2018, I was selected to take part in this field trip to Uzbekistan to engage with the students of the Uzbek University where we were divided in to small groups to take part in the project called Hackaton. This trip has helped me in many ways to improve my knowledge and even personally me.

ABOUT
The University of Westminster is located in the heart of central London, close to the bustling shopping areas of Oxford Street and Regent Street. In fact, our main headquarters building is located on Regent Street itself and dates back to the foundation of the institution, then the Royal Polytechnic in 1838. Additionally, we have a large campus in Harrow, slightly out of the centre of town, which offers a greener environment where students can study in brand new purpose built teaching accommodation. Our international reputation dates from our founding years as the first ever polytechnic to the present day as one of Britain's largest universities with around 19,000 students studying a wide range of full- and part-time courses.
The University has four campuses. Three located in central London and one in Harrow, suburban North West London.
