We are investing more than £13 million into the new media centre, which has been designed by architects Rivington Street Studio. They will be creating a 2000 metre-square modern building offering the following state-of the art facilities:
- 2 newsrooms that replicate real working environments
- A cinema with almost 100 seats
- A film studio, with state-of-the-art technology and equipment
- Film editing suites
- Resources for sound editing
- Digital media facilities with Mac computers, and professional software covering a range of different purposes, including film and image editing, animation, and coding
- Creative spaces for students to use for independent and group study
The new facilities are being developed in conjunction with acoustic and theatre specialists to ensure that students will receive industry standard experiences.
The facility will provide a modern, adaptable learning environment, with spaces for individual and group work, interactive and collaborative projects, as well as quiet study spaces for students, staff and the local community.
