International Journalism

The programme is designed so that if you have no experience you will receive basic training in journalism practice. If you already have journalistic skills, you will be able to concentrate on analysing the craft and your own part in it. In this way, the course will develop your ability to critically analyse the purpose and structure of journalism and to evaluate the processes and products of either your own or other people's work. International Journalism is the first course aimed at developing critical analysis on the international stage for both practitioners and those who have a serious interest in this field. The programme concentrates on journalism with international relations and is suitable for students from abroad as well as those from the UK. You will be taught by professional, experienced and enthusiastic academic staff with extensive and current practical industry experience in print, radio, television and online journalism. Many of them have an excellent record of research and publications in journalism and international relations.

Entry requirements

You will require a Bachelors degree in a relevant subject (e.g. journalism, media studies, english language, english literature, politics, history, sociology) with a pass of at least a lower second class. Those without a degree may be considered depending on their circumstances. It is anticipated that since this programme will be of interest to those who are practising journalists, one possible non-degree entry route will be a minimum of five years journalistic experience. Any applicant who has worked as a journalist, press officer, information officer or in a similar post for at least five years are welcome to apply for the course. For international students: recognised qualifications equivalent to a British Bachelors degree in a relevant subject (e.g. journalism, media studies, english language, english literature, history, sociology) with a pass of at least lower second class; an IELTS score of 6.5 (minimum 5.5 in each component)or an equivalent English language test accepted by UKVI.

Assessment methods

Assessment is mixed, with practical modules usually based around portfolios of written work and simulated or real exercises. Theory modules are more generally assessed by essays, although there are a few presentations and an exam.
