A journalism degree in the UK focuses on the core skills needed to prepare you for a career in print and online. You will focus on the practice of investigation and reporting of events, issues, and trends to a broad audience, with modules taking place on digital journalism, journalism in a wider global context, magazine journalism, multimedia journalism and the craft of shorthand.
Optional placements are available during the final year of study, and students are encouraged to gain experience from UK universities' close links with the industry by spending anything from three months to one year on work experience. A journalism degree is an esteemed course to study, and the continued emergence of technology and ever changing trends means the role and status of journalism in the 21st century are constantly evolving.
Journalism graduates will find roles across a wide range of private, public, and voluntary sectors in criticism, sub-editing, page design, reporting, proofreading, copywriting, web editing, PR, social media, and marketing.
Please note that entry requirements vary for each UK university.

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
