London and Manchester are the UK’s media heartlands, making them the obvious base for the best journalism undergraduate degree in the UK.

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 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.
