Journalism News Broadcast Sport degree offered at University of Salford combines the high standards for which Salford has become known in the industry with the rigour of the full NCTJ programme. This includes the necessary aspects of British law and the Teeline shorthand desired by editors in UK newsrooms. Students who intend to work outside the UK, or for organisations not based here, might be better suited to our MA in International Journalism for Digital Media, which explores how foreign correspondence professionals are taking advantage of digital technology to reach diverse audiences.

Many of our students have gone on to secure professional roles with national broadcasters, such as the BBC, Sky and ITV, as well as leading UK print and online media publications for companies including Bloomberg, the Manchester Evening News and the Cavendish Press national news agency.
