The School of Journalism Manchester run a series of practical journalism masterclasses/open evenings in our Manchester office aimed at those looking to start a degree in 2017 or 2018.

The open evenings will be hosted by our award-winning editors and training team, giving you a glimpse into the industry and the sort of training you’d receive as a student on our BA (Hons) Journalism degree, which commences in September 2017.

Practical open days

These two-hour practical journalism sessions taking place throughout the year are free of charge and are aimed at A-Level students looking to attend university in 2017 or 2018.

Both parents and prospective students are invited to a talk from our managing editor and to a Q&A with our heads of journalism and training team.

You 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 you. There will also be time for feedback and careers advice.
