You will work within the Dolman Lounge and press areas of the stadium, actively used by the Bristol Sport media teams and visiting journalists from the BBC, Sky Sports, BT Sport and local reporters. With food and drink outlets also on-site and other nearby amenities, you have everything you need to have a great learning experience. If you want a career in Sports Media Production, this is the place to be.
The course is built around projects which are designed to reflect working in the professional work place. Often you’ll be working with real clients on real commercial projects.

Bristol City Robins Foundation International Tour
A team of students geared up for a week abroad with Robins Foundation to document an international sports tour. The tour saw them photograph, film and live stream both men’s and women’s football matches in Portugal.
The students were able to take over Bristol City's official social media channels for the week so that they could share the player’s and coach’s experiences to the public.
Sports broadcast and journalism visits
We were privileged to recently host sports journalist, Gregor MacGregor, and Sky Sports presenter, Michelle Owen.
Together, they produce the ‘Bristol City Live’ podcast and visited boomsatsuma for a Q&A with our students, who were themselves embarking on producing monthly podcasts for the Robins Foundation. Students spent the day with Gregor and Michelle whilst they recorded the latest episode of their podcast.
