Broadcast Journalism

This course is highly vocational and our students often progress into industry jobs before graduating. The award has full accreditation from the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) and students are also able to take the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) core exams. You will work with a team of top journalists and academics. The two main tutors each have over 25 years' experience of working in the broadcast industry, working for the UK's largest broadcasters - the BBC and ITV. They are co-authors of the leading Broadcast Journalism practical textbook in Britain 'The Broadcast Journalism Handbook'. You will learn how to self-shoot and edit a TV package, how to present on television and radio and how to operate as a multimedia journalist. You will also be taught how to write news pieces and then present them on TV, radio and online, as well as how to report, how to interview, how to use a TV camera and how to produce and direct in a studio.
