Our MA Journalism course is one of a suite of journalism postgraduate courses designed to offer students the chance to learn multimedia journalism skills.
Graduates from our courses work for organisations such as national and regional newspapers, websites, magazines and broadcasters.
The MA Journalism course is currently accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).
Students will normally be expected to have an upper second or above classification for an honours degree from a British higher education institution, or an equivalent overseas qualification.
Applicants with a lower second will be considered if they can demonstrate a commitment to journalism.
Mature students and candidates with non-standard qualifications are also considered, if they have substantial professional or other relevant experience.
Applicants may be required to complete a written/oral admissions test.
International students are required to have IELTS 7. UK industry accreditation bodies require IELTS 7.5 for their programme of study.

The course begins with an intensive introduction to creating content where students learn how to report and write stories for publication.
