Accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists
News reporting takes expertise in creating and publishing digital content alongside a solid grasp of traditional skills and knowledge. Take this degree and you’ll develop both – in our online newsrooms and out on the streets of the city during our production newsdays, when you'll work with a team to publish your stories on a real, public-facing news website and social media channel. You'll use your learning in newswriting, web publishing, shorthand, video, media law and ethics to hunt down and write up stories to meet real-time deadlines with your team. Our alumni are intelligent and successful journalists who are excellent at both traditional newswriting and digital mobile journalism.
You must have one of the following:
A 2:1 honours degree (we will consider a 2:2 if we are sufficiently impressed by your potential).
An alternative qualification approved by the University as degree equivalent.
Substantial previous work experience in a media-related role.
English language requirements:
Overall IELTS score of 7.5 with a minimum of 7.0 in each component, or equivalent.
