Year 2 UAL Extended Diploma in Media Production and Technology (Journalism pathway) 

The Harlow College School of Journalism is proud to present their work at the first annual Harlow Creates festival. 

This term the UAL Year One students were given the theme CULTURE, while the UAL Year Two students were given the theme OPPORTUNITY. Students were required to produce a completely original and unique product using whatever medium they wished, including video, audio, print, digital, or social media. 

Many of the students have been inspired to take advantage of the departments several Mac suites to create print and digital newspapers and magazines, books and brochures. Some students have opted for TV and radio, taking advantage of the departments green screen studio or the radio suite to produce short news programmes, chat shows, documentaries, and reality TV shows. The popularity of this subject area has inspired the department to launch a new course starting in September specialising in Factual TV Production.
