Bournemouth University’s Media School

The Media School, at Bournemouth University, is the largest centre of vocational higher education for the media industries in the UK. It is the UK’s only Centre for Excellence in Media Practice (as designated by Higher Education Funding Council for England).

It offers, high-quality, industry-recognised courses in Media Production, including the highly-acclaimed MA in Radio Production, and founded BIRSt in 1999, one of the first university internet radio stations in the UK, to enable students to showcase their coursework.

The radio team is led by the UK’s first Professor of Radio (and regular Radio 4 & Radio 3 Presenter and Producer) Seán Street, who is also leading a high-profile project to digitize LBC’s news and current affairs archive, which is stored at Bournemouth.

The University has excellent industry-standard facilities and prepares students for radio production, presentation and management careers. Staff regularly consult with industry and reflect upon the current radio trends in lectures and debates. It welcomes a range of keynote speakers from industry each year and students and staff regularly win awards for their radio programmes.
