POSTGRADUATE JOURNALISM COURSES
Postgraduate sudy 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.
