On the Young Journalist Programme, a group of journalists from some of the world’s most renowned media brands will immerse you in the world of journalism through a series of interactive role plays, seminars and Q&A sessions.
You will have the opportunity to experience some hands-on journalistic activities, including pursuing a thrilling corporate manslaughter investigation and recording your own news story.
You will also be coached on how to maximise your chances of becoming a top journalist, starting now. You will leave the programme having gained a competitive edge over other aspiring journalists, and a 'super-curricular' experience to include on your UCAS application.
The programme takes place at UCL, with group activities in break-out areas and seminar aspects in a lecture hall. The programme involves a mixture of interactive simulations, exercises and Q&A sessions. A full timetable can be found below.
£135/student for the full day. Places are limited. If 2 or more places are booked students receive a 10% discount. Enter code GROUP10 at checkout to benefit from this.
