Course summary

Course summary

This course offers a hands-on curriculum that allows you to develop core journalistic skills in broadcast and digital media. You will learn the technical skills to master TV, audio and digital reporting. The course has a very practical focus, so you will develop your own story ideas and gather your own material through research and reporting for journalistic course work.

You will be given full training in using our up-to-date video, audio, social media management and mobile journalism resources, ensuring that you graduate from the course as a multi-skilled journalist. These practical skills are underpinned with training in media law, ethics and regulation.

Whether your passion is current affairs, arts and culture, investigative features, travel, fashion, sport – or you are still deciding, our aim is to help you to find your first job in journalism.

We assist students to get work placements during the course, provide career advice, arrange media networking events and keep close contact with potential employers.

While mainly being taught at our broadcast studio facility at Harrow Campus, modules are also delivered at our Regent Street Campus in the heart of London. This allows you the opportunity to report stories of this dynamic city within walking distance of the BBC, CNN and BuzzFeed.

The MA has been accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC), which means we provide industry-backed journalism training for online, TV and radio. Our students regularly win BJTC awards, and the course has been awarded the BJTC award for excellence in teaching.

Our teaching staff are highly experienced journalism professionals, and our graduates go on to work with a variety of leading media organisations including BBC TV and Radio, BBC News Online, CNN, ITN, Russia Today, Al Jazeera, the Financial Times, Rolling Stone, and Cosmopolitan magazine and many other media houses in Britain and around the world.

There is a strong emphasis on learning through 'hands-on' practice, in small class groups. Most of your assessed coursework will be 'real' journalism assignments and you will take part in several mock news days.

As well as regular classes taught by experienced journalists on our staff, we also invite other media professionals as guest speakers or to critique student work.
