Media Studies (Eduqas)

At Key Stage 4, students can choose to study Media Studies. This course helps students develop applied knowledge and practical skills and is designed with a mix of both theory and practical units, aimed to prepare students for a number of further education pathways.

At the end of the course, students will complete two written examinations and create one practical coursework component. 

The course is broken down into 3 units: 

  • Unit 1: Exploring the media including looking at media language and representation.
  • Unit 2: Understanding media forms and products including analysing film, television and music products.
  • Unit 3: Creating media products from a brief.
