Entry requirements

The entry requirement for this course is a Bachelor (Honours) Degree at a 2:1 or above in any discipline. We look for applicants to have relevant work experience with demonstrable interest in Journalism in order to be eligible for the programme.

We may also consider lesser qualifications if you have sufficient relevant work experience within the industry.

For applicants who meet the academic criteria, you will need to submit a portfolio with your application. The portfolio could include anything from articles (published or unpublished), a detailed outline of what you did on a placement, links to a video or audio clip or links to your own blog or website.

The University does not sponsor students to study on part-time programmes in the UK under the Student Visa route. International Applicants must therefore have other valid immigration leave to study on this programme.

You'll learn through practical experience, both in our news rooms and on an industry placement, and we also support you in getting your work published and broadcast.
