This International Multimedia Journalism programme from University of Kent differs from our other taught MA programme in that it is not accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ), as the standard NCTJ diploma focuses on UK media law and the British system of government.
In this programme you learn to report for newspapers, news websites, radio and television channels in state-of-the-art newsrooms, learning reporting skills which are applicable to, and recognised by, news organisations around the world. Study at the only UK university which is co-located with a professional TV station, KMTV. Your tutors are award-winning journalists with front-line experience in local, national and international newsrooms.
Our courses equip you with the necessary skills to work as a journalist. Several of our students have been offered jobs before they have finished their examinations, and editors regularly ask if our best students could apply for jobs with them.
Our students have obtained jobs at places such as Sky News, The Daily Mail, BBC News, the Huffington Post and South China Morning Post.
