Studying journalism in the UK could be a great opportunity to further your education while receiving international experience in a global field. We have some wonderful programmes in the UK where you can specialize in journalism quickly and not have to take any non-related classes. You can do a 3-year bachelor degree or a 1-year graduate degree and save at least one year attending a programme in the UK instead of the US. Attending an esteemed programme for journalism in the UK would set you apart in the job market.
Journalism is a field that is ever-changing and international. You would receive invaluable experience studying at one of our partner Universities in locations like London or Glasgow, Scotland, which is the media hub of Scotland and becoming a major hub of the entire UK. In Glasgow, you can study at the University of Strathclyde where they offer a very specialized Masters in Investigative Journalism where working professionals can upgrade their skills with theoretical and practical experience like how to overturn a wrongful conviction.
If you are looking to study a postgraduate degree in the UK, we work with some of the leading programmes in the UK. University of Kent’s Journalism is ranked 1st in the UK for journalism by The Guardian University Guide 2015. It could be a great programme for students who love to have a diverse blended discipline experience because it encourages interdisciplinary research and has strong links with other academic departments at the University of Kent such as the Law School and the School of History.
Another fantastic MA programme, that you we work with, is at the University of Lincoln which has a close working relationship with the BBC. Attending Lincoln University also gives students the opportunity to work at Lincoln’s award-winning newspaper The Lincolnshire Echo, especially if you are particularly interested in print journalism.
Studying a Bachelors degree in journalism in the UK can also give you a wonderful specialized experience in journalism. We work with some of the top Universities such as City University in London that have a highly ranked media department. You can study a range of specialized bachelor programmes such Investigative, Science, Financial, or even Political Journalism.
They also have a very high employment rate once students complete the bachelor degree there. You can study at another of our London Universities at the University of Roehampton where you can do joint journalism bachelor degrees with a language such as French and Journalism or Spanish and Journalism. So if you are interested in a blended modern language programme with journalism, Roehampton has the programme for you. Another fantastic partner University that we work with is Bournemouth University whose Journalism BA was the first in the UK to be triple accredited. Recent graduates of this programme at Bournemouth are now working journalists for CNN and BBC.
