There are now opportunities for Grants available. Click here for more information.
The courses are practically based with the aim of getting students a job on a magazine, newspaper, online/video website or for those who want to make it as a freelancer. In today’s world, it is crucial that journalists-to-be have as many skills as possible, and a wide range, and that is achieved through the content of these courses.
The one year Multimedia journalism course (three days a week) would be suitable for someone wanting to train to be a fully qualified journalist but has other commitments they have to maintain on the other two days.
The fast track is a high pressure course and students are made aware that it comes first; hence we discourage students with part time or evening work commitments.
Our students are noted for achieving high standards, gaining plum jobs in the industry and winning NCTJ awards for their excellence.
