Multimedia Journalism (Print and Online)

Students are able to specialise in a particular medium on the course, but they also develop a wider range of skills, allowing them to be familiarised with the way that journalists work across different platforms; this course equip students with the practical and intellectual skills necessary to succeed in print, online media, multi-platform or broadcast journalism.

Entry requirements

A good Honours degree (2.1 or above), journalism work experience (a short placement or more extensive professional experience) and a good understanding of the media and current affairs. Applicants whose 1st language is not English should have an IELTS score (or its equivalent) of 7.0 in speaking and in writing. Applicants should submit 2 short assignments with their application; the first should explain why they have decided on a career in journalism (250 words maximum), and the second should be either an analysis of the print, online or broadcast media in their home country, or an analysis of how a recent news story was covered in different media (300 words maximum).

Assessment methods

With such a strong emphasis throughout on learning through 'hands-on' practice, much of the assessed course-work is real journalism, either as individual assignments or when working in small teams.
