Media and Communication

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Digital technologies dominate the media and communication industry today. Education in this field prepares students to create communication products through interactive media, film, and television. Preparation includes being able to gather, evaluate, and synthesize information and then write a message that communicates clearly to the audience.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
