Students on BA (Hons) Journalism and MA Journalism all conduct a minimum of three weeks’ work experience.

We help you obtain work experience in placement workshops and through tutorials as well as with the help of our online work-experience information-sharing site.

We strongly emphasise employability and encourage students to freelance alongside studying. In a series of guest lectures, employers from the industry tell you about every day life on the job.
