Study Plus and the Centre for Journalism at Medway are running a free journalism course from 12-16 June. If you’ve ever thought of a career in journalism, this is your chance to find out if it’s for you.
The course offers an intensive immersion in the basic principles and practices of journalism in the multimedia age. During five days of teaching, you will learn what professional journalists do and how they do it. You will experience the pressure and pleasure of making real journalism to real deadlines under professional leadership.
The course is taught at the Centre for Journalism on the Medway campus, but is open to all Kent students. You can catch the free shuttle bus from Canterbury campus to Medway (you need to book this online): https://www.kent.ac.uk/campus-shuttle/
