Master's Programmes



RNTC has a history of over forty years of media training with an emphasis on learning by doing


RNTC works with a flexible pool of trainers in order to design the course according to the needs of the specific course and group of students.

The strength of RNTCs methodology is the emphasis on learning by doing. Active participation is more effective than passively listening to lectures. Receiving and giving feedback reinforces the uptake of new ideas and skills. Knowledge discovered is more tangible than knowledge thats handed over on a plate. It is also easier for people to apply in their work contexts.

Student Reviews

A wonderful opportunity
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Studying about media campaigns for social development was a great experience. I got to meet people from different parts of the world and interact with them on a daily basis. I also learned lots of valuable things that I know will be useful in my work in the future.
