Overview

The Multimedia Journalism (Print and Online) course from the University of Westminster is accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) which means beside written journalism we also offer you industry backed journalism training for online video and broadcast providing voice training, camera skills and editing. Our graduates go on to work with a variety of leading media organisations including The Guardian, The Evening Standard, BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera, or Conde Nast, and many other media houses in Britain and around the world.

Many of our students have won journalism awards, and we have twice been awarded a BJTC award for excellence in teaching as our teaching staff are all experienced journalism professionals who have worked for The Guardian, The Independent or Conde Nast and other media outlets. 

There's a strong emphasis on learning through 'hands-on' practice, in small class groups, using our professional standard facilities. Most of your assessed course-work will be 'real' journalism assignments, a preparation for the exciting world of contemporary journalism.

Career Path 

  • Though designed to prepare you for a career in journalism, this course could also lead to a career in public relations, communications, or any other professional pathway which requires effective communication skills, and the use of convergent media.
  • Graduates work in journalism and content production as editors, reporters, producers and successful freelancers. They have gone to work as editors with BBC News, written cover stories of The Guardian, have become producers at CNN and overlook the content output of a fashion brand or an NGO. Both pathways are accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC).
  • We assist students to get work placements during the course, provide career advice, arrange network events, and keep close contact to potential employers.
