Goldsmiths' operating principles for 2022-23 have not yet been finalised but should changes be required to teaching in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will publish these as early as possible for prospective students wishing to start their programme in September 2022.
This programme offers a route into teaching a dynamic and constantly evolving subject. Our experts will teach you everything you need to know about the place of Media Studies within the school curriculum through a diverse and integrated course.
Why study PGCE (Secondary) Media Studies with English at Goldsmiths?
