  • POSTGRADUATE COURSES
    Postgraduate study takes the form of a staged award – a postgraduate certificate covering the basics of professional skills including shorthand, news reporting, media law and feature writing and magazine work. The postgraduate certificate lasts for one semester, approximately twelve weeks. The postgraduate certificate (BJTC) is followed by the postgraduate diploma which is based around work attachment and live production in our newsroom and studios. This also takes one semester, approximately twelve weeks. 

    The MA (masters) level is usually taken over the summer. It involves a major journalistic project in the form of a documentary film; a series of magazine articles or an innovative production project. In recent years our students have won a host of national awards for the quality of their work, and this has helped all our students gain entry into the profession.

    UNDERGRADUATE COURSES

    The courses at Winchester are amongst the best established in the country. The team has helped hundreds of students into the industry over a period of quarter of a century. Winchester students therefore have access to an excellent network of alumni - crucially consisting of students who have entered the industry very recently.

    Our location less than an hour south of London provides a perfect combination of access to the capital city, and a beautiful location to live and study on one of the country’s best equipped and supportive campuses.

    If you need more information about the masters level please follow the links to the MA website. There you will be able to fill in our online application form.
