Creative Media Practice Students Get Digital with Teesside University

Date Posted: 30/11/2022 | Posted In: Latest news

Creative Media Practice students from QE have perfected their digital skills at a hands-on workshop with Teesside University. The students had the exciting opportunity to create their own online magazine and webpages which featured topics of their choice including death metal, skateboarding, the history of fashion and cocktail making. The magazine, named ‘Creative’, then came to life on screen as the group got to grips with the University’s state of the art facilities. They also received a tour of the new radio station and TV studio, obtaining a glimpse into life for a Media undergraduate.

First year student, Lily Partridge, who studies Film Studies and Graphics in addition to Creative Media Practice at QE, comments: ‘I found the visit to Teesside University very useful as it allowed me to explore different sides of the media industry and it opened my mind to the variety of courses you can pursue at university.’ Beccy Vickers, Course Leader of Creative Media Practice, adds: ‘It was a really good experience for our students to see Teesside’s media facilities, especially the radio station and TV studio. They also had to work to strict deadlines with their magazine article which helped them to gain an understanding of both higher education and the journalism industry.’

QE’s Creative Media Practice course is ideal for those wanting to work in film, TV or advertising. Students are provided with a detailed knowledge of media techniques and industrial frameworks with the subject placing an emphasis on the development of both research and practice skills.
