I recommend visiting the Press Complaints Commission for a talk on their regulations and code of practice. A seminar at the British Board of Film Classification will allow students to talk to the people who decide whether a film is rated PG or 12A.

England's capital city is considered to be the epicentre of the national press and television and as such no Media Studies student tour worth its salt is going to pass up an opportunity to take in the sights. The home of the BBC has to be up there on any student tour to London and booking a visit to Broadcasting House or BBC Television Centre will certainly resonate with anyone wishing to get behind the scenes.

Of course, being part of a live studio audience presents an altogether different perspective and the chance to see sets, cameras and work in action, is a thoroughly absorbing experience. Broadcasting House also plays host to our national radio stations and taking a peek at the recording studios and concert halls will certainly be of interest to those wishing to make their voices heard.
Aside from the small screen, media studies tours in London will also incorporate film and just a stroll along the Thames will take you to the London Film Museum as well as the UK's leading specialised cinema, the BFI Southbank.
This is an excellent chance for university media students to immerse themselves in the practical and the glamorous side of the silver screen and a trip to the Warner Brother's studio, just outside of the city, will no doubt prove just as entertaining as educational.
Finally, journalists and newspapers are rarely out of the headlines themselves these days and visiting the Press Complaints Commission will no doubt prove just as insightful as taking in the sights of Fleet Street. From the historic buildings that have helped to shape the media as we know it today, to state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, at the O2's British Music Experience, London will always be one of the most important destinations on any university media studies tour.
