The School of Journalism run a series of practical journalism masterclasses and open evenings in our London and Manchester offices aimed at those looking to start a degree in 2018 or 2019.

The sessions are 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.

Practical open evenings

These two-hour practical journalism open evenings that take place throughout the year are free of charge and are aimed at A-Level students looking to attend university in 2018 or 2019.

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.
