Free Journalism Workshop – Journalism Degree

The School of Journalism is having a practical open evening for their BA (Hons) Journalism degree in Manchester on Thursday, June 15 from 7pm-9pm

The opening evening will be hosted by our award-winning editors and training team, giving students a glimpse into the industry and the sort of training they’d receive at The School of Journalism.

Both parents and students are invited to the two-hour session including a talk from our managing editor and a Q&A with our heads of journalism and training team.

Students will also get the chance to participate in a range of practical broadcast and news writing exercises to see if journalism, and our hands-on training, is for them – followed by feedback and careers advice.

If students would like to attend or have any questions, they can  call 0208 545 1662.

Are you interested in a career in Journalism?

News Associates are running a series of free, hands-on workshops in their Manchester office in December (Saturday 12th and Monday 21st). It would be an excellent opportunity for students to get some experience on their CVs and UCAS forms.

The sessions are very practical and great fun, and provide a chance to sample life as a working multimedia journalist including:

  • – A breaking news exercise where they simulate a newsroom and get you to produce a mock article for the BBC website.
  • – A broadcast session where you get to present a news bulletin to camera.
