London and Manchester are the UK’s media heartlands, making them the obvious base for our award-winning journalism training programmes.

While Fleet Street has been long abandoned, the capital city boasts the headquarters of a national newspaper marketplace unrivalled around the world. Parliament and protests, sport and showbiz, London is a story-rich patch to train to be a journalist.

Manchester is home to the BBC’s Media City, with a constant source of news and sports stories right on your doorstep.

Whether it’s the roar of 76,000 at Old Trafford or the crowd’s screams at a Stone Roses reunion gig, Manchester is a city with plenty to shout about and write about.

These cities are at the forefront of the technical changes that are reshaping journalism in a digital revolution that is changing working practices forever.

It’s here where traditional media companies are reinventing themselves, in some cases, not just converging, but colliding.
