Journalism with Media Studies BA (Hons) – Year 1: Induction information

Welcome

Welcome to Portsmouth and the first year of your degree. We hope you're excited to start your new life at university.

Welcome message from Professor Trevor Keeble, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries

I’m delighted to welcome you to the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) at the University of Portsmouth. I’m so pleased that you have chosen to come and study with us and hope that your time at Portsmouth will be challenging, rewarding and fun. I’m very proud to work alongside the many talented people who make up our academic, technical and professional support teams in CCI. We have been working incredibly hard to ensure that your experience as a new student in the Faculty is excellent in spite of the challenges that we currently face as a consequence of the pandemic. Things will obviously be done slightly differently to how they have been done before but I know that working safely together, we will thrive. Have a great year. I wish you every success in what you do and hope that your time at Portsmouth is a very happy one.

Staying safe on campus

We have all the appropriate measures in place to keep you safe. 

We’ve invested £8 million in reopening the campus with hand sanitiser stations, temperature scanners, one-way systems, enhanced cleaning, protective screens and two Covid-19 testing sites. These safety measures give you access to Covid-safe teaching rooms, the library and other student services across campus – plus IT resources and laptops you can borrow

We’ve made some changes to teaching, following Government safety advice. Most teaching sessions will be online to start with, and any face-to-face teaching will be in small groups with social distancing measures in place. 

As circumstances around the pandemic change, we may need to make further changes to courses for your safety and to comply with Government guidelines. Though it’s a fast moving situation, we'll provide you with as much notice as possible of any changes. The University and your course leader will inform you of these changes.

International and EU students

If you're joining us from overseas, find out about our International Orientation events and what you need to do during your first week.

If you can't travel to the UK, or you don't feel safe to travel, your course's first teaching block will be delivered completely online. Our International Orientation events will also be online, so you'll still be able to get involved in welcome talks and social activities, as well as meet other new students.
