Diversity and the media MA

United Kingdom, Graduate

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

That there would be a large amount of initial costs involved with moving, and a quantitative idea of how much those would be, would have helped overcome the initial shock of being away from home.

Aside from studying, take the time to get to know your surroundings and what London has to offer. Travel as much as possible, because it is easier to do so from one of the city's many smaller airports.

I advise everyone to have an international experience, and take the most of it. However, you should prepare it in advance very carefully.

It's a very good university. The teachers are very interesting and make you feel at home. The location is the best, right in the centre of London and the activities the university offers are varied and interesting.

Going abroad is a very great experience. You meet lots of different people who live the same thing as you. I would advise to someone who wants to go to study in London to come with a lot of money because it's really expensive. You have to be ready to spend a lot! As for the accomodation, it's quite hard at the beginning to find something but then everyone is pleased and there is a very useful newspaper called the Loot with hundreds of accomodation ads

Although I do not regret having studied here, I think they should care a little more for international studies.They should try to be more organised.My registration day was chaotic!

Bear in mind that London is a very expensive city, and it can be very difficult to find accommodation.Maybe you are not going to make many British friends, but be sure that you'll find loads of great people among the international students!At least, that's my experience.

What can I say. It is market economy. Education becomes kind of commodity. I have a feeling that the University concerns more about money than the students' quality of learning.
