The Centre is based in the city of Nottingham, giving students plenty of opportunities for hands on experience. This approach ensures that students learn both the academic and practical skills which provide the training essential to build a successful journalism career.
Our specialist training courses are available at both Masters and Postgraduate Diploma level and cover all aspects of newspaper, online, radio and TV journalism. An extensive network of national and international contacts, coupled with high academic standards allows students to benefit from the experience and resources of leaders in the media profession. Visiting professors and well known figures from the media deliver talks, tutorials, workshops and public lectures.
We also run a suite of journalism training courses for international students, which are specially designed to equip students with journalism skills whilst providing the opportunity to develop the English language skills appropriate for working as an international journalist.
