**Indicative Fees for 2017/18 Home and EU students are £9,250 per year. Whilst the inflationary fee increases in tuition fees and student support loans have been announced by the Minister, they are still subject to formal parliamentary approval and the approval of The University of Winchester Board of Governors. International fees are still subject to approval from the University of Winchester Board of Governors.
Students gain the knowledge, understanding and skills to reflect on their work in the media, and to identify and respond in a reasoned, positive and reflective manner to initiatives and challenges in the sector.
One key aspect of a career in the media is the continuous state of technological development. Accordingly, while training in particular technologies is part of the degree, an ethos across the programme is for students to develop a strategic approach to their career pathway and personal development so as to prepare themselves for a working life of continuous professional development.
Students work towards specific projects in Year 1 to ensure an understanding of practical media production methods and their theoretical underpinning. Camera, lighting and sound production and its ever changing technology are explored, as are TV research methods. Year 2 allows students to begin to specialise and explore creativity within production groups; modules examine different media forms as well as TV studio, drama and documentary production.
The Multimedia Project reflects the convergence of technologies found in the contemporary industry by asking students to create a project of their choice in one medium and produce supporting, promotional material in two other media. Students learn how to produce drama and documentary, culminating in a public film festival at the end of Year 2. Year 3 allows for more individual student-led learning while pushing creative boundaries within modules.
Open 24 hours a day, the Multimedia Centre offers outstanding industry-standard facilities including two HD TV studios with green screens, a newsroom, a computerised radio studio, and facilities for multitrack audio recording. A wide range of equipment is available and the Centre is an Apple Certified Training Centre.

The University aims to develop students as 'confident learners' by enabling them to acquire the knowledge and skills to excel in their studies here and be transferable to further studies or the employment market. Staff and students form a community of learners who, together and independently, seek to generate and exchange knowledge. Over the duration of the course, students develop independent and critical learning, building confidence and expertise progressively through independent and collaborative research, problem solving, and analysis with the support of staff. Students take responsibility for their own learning and are encouraged to make use of the wide range of learning resources available to them.
In addition to the formally scheduled contact time (i.e. lectures, seminars etc.), students are encouraged to access academic support from staff within the course team, personal tutors and the wide range of services to students within the University.

The University is committed to providing timely and appropriate feedback to students on their academic progress and achievement, enabling them to reflect on their progress and plan their academic and skills development effectively. Students are also encouraged to seek additional feedback from their course tutors and lecturers.

The Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) record collects information about what those completing university go on to do six months after graduation. The Careers Service undertakes DLHE on an annual basis through surveys and a data collection process. DLHE is designed and strictly controlled by HESA.
While DLHE provides accurate information about first destinations, this data needs to be viewed with some degree of care. Six months after leaving university is often a time of much uncertainty and change for leavers; many will be unsure of their long-term career plans and may take a temporary job or time out. The destinations of graduates only six months out of university do not necessarily reflect longer term career success and are therefore a crude measure of employability. Therefore, DLHE data should be viewed as merely a 'snapshot' of one particular year's experiences at a specific point in time.
