Student Profile(s)

Michael Hann - Reuters reporter

By studying the MA in International Journalism I developed a good understanding of the way news is reported across the world. I became economically and politically literate and this means I am able to decipher the correlation between the two when it comes to topics that dominate the news agenda. The skills I developed on the MA have been extremely helpful with employability. Since graduating I have gone on to work for Reuters and I regularly draw upon the knowledge I gained from the MA. For example, in my current role at Reuters I often work across different media platforms including print, online and visual.

Ayesha Hafiz - PR Executive

Through the duration of my time on the course I learned a great deal about some of the world's most influential organisations such as the IMF and World Bank which helped develop my personal understanding of finance and politics and their very significant links to every day journalism. I really enjoyed the freedom I had to research areas of my own interest whether it was through individual or group work. The class was made up of a variety of individuals from diverse backgrounds which was a positive contribution towards our learning.

Samuel Holden - Reuters reporter
