In a Nutshell 

During the International Journalism for Digital Media programme of the University of Salford you will:

  • Study at our MediaCity campus, which is the media hub of the north, home to the BBC and ITV northern headquarters
  • Be mentored by our well-connected and experienced broadcast and digital journalism practitioners
  • Experience a real-life environment of digital newsrooms, and use our state-of-the-art TV and radio studios


Graduates of our digital journalism masters can enter careers in various forms of journalism, including print, broadcast or online. You could work in reporting or management roles, public relations, research, or media analysis, both in this country or abroad. As a journalist, you could work as a UK-based foreign correspondent travelling abroad or full-time in overseas postings.

As well as that, during your time studying, you’ll build a portfolio of work that can be shared with potential employers, as well as develop a number of highly sought-after transferrable skills. Employers are always interested in candidates with strong research, development and delivery skills, as well as the ability to present ideas to a professional standard, all of which you will have used during your studies.

We’ve seen graduates from this course go on to do incredible things in their careers, including one graduate who is a TV anchor on a national TV channel in Indonesia, and another who runs a high-profile news website on the polar regions and Arctic marine life, regularly travelling on icebreakers with North Pole and Antarctic expeditions.
