The School of Journalism runs free journalism masterclasses and Q&A sessions aimed at those looking to start a degree in 2021 or 2022, all of which are currently run remotely using Zoom. 

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.


We are running a series of practical journalism masterclasses during February half term for those wishing to dip their toe in the water before taking the plunge and applying for a journalism degree.

The masterclasses for students are free and there will always be a chance at the end of each session to ask questions about anything and everything to do with our courses and getting into journalism.

Where and when? – Because of coronavirus, these sessions will now be taking place remotely using Zoom. Sign up for more details!
