Media Studies GCSE

GCSE Media Studies offers you and your students an interactive and engaging course that aims to broaden students’ minds. Students cover all aspects of media including language, representations, industries and audiences, giving students both an overall and in-depth understanding of how media represents the world.

This qualification is linear. Linear means that students will sit all their exams and submit all their non-exam assessment at the end of the course.
