School of Media and Communication


The BA New Media is giving me the opportunity to study my interests, and to really learn more about myself. I feel like a better designer and coder, and more importantly a better thinker.

The School of Media and Communication is based in a specially refurbished state-of-the-art building at the heart of the Leeds campus.

Our exceptional facilities include a range of flexible teaching spaces, a purpose-built cinema, a digital media lab, radio and television studios, and creative media suites.

We have a 58-seat cinema equipped with Dolby Digital sound and high-definition projection facilities, as well as projectors for 16mm and 35mm film.

You can work on your own projects in any of our 80 editing bays, equipped with Avid Media Composer editing software and Adobe Creative Cloud. We also have 4k colour grading facilities in our five edit pods using DaVinci Resolve Studio.

The fully equipped TV studio also has a large green screen area, lighting and photo-flash facilities. We also have a track and dolly, sliders, Glidecam and various cranes, and you’ll have access to a new photographic dark room

We run a loans service where you can borrow a range of HD digital camcorders, from 4.6k cinema style cameras to UHD documentary style cameras, and various Canon stills cameras as well as Fuji and Pentax medium digital format cameras to help with your project work.
