Course summary

**Course overview**- Make us your first choice if you are determined to have the best possible start in an exciting career in journalism. From the first day of the course, you will be encouraged to think like a journalist - to be inquisitive, resourceful, sceptical and persistent in your quest. While developing these essential skills, you will study the history of journalism, its role in society and the legal and ethical framework within which journalists work. This course works to real deadlines, so TV and radio work is assessed live, publications are put together to print deadlines and professional meetings take place as they would in industry.
