The Masters in Magazine Journalism, currently accredited by both the Professional Publishers Association (PPA) and the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ), is designed to prepare you for a dynamic and developing medium.
Our postgraduate course provides practical training in the specific skills needed by working journalists, particularly in the magazine industry.
Upper Second or First classification for your honours degree from a British higher education institution, or an equivalent overseas qualification. Mature students with non-standard qualifications may also apply if they have substantial professional or other relevant experience. It is also important to show initiative and a knowledge of the magazine and newspaper industries. Previous work experience is obviously desirable. Minority ethnic groups and disabled people are under-represented in journalism so applications from members of these groups are particularly welcome.
Overseas students for whom English is a second language need an IELTS score of 8.0.
