Overview

It has never been a more exciting time to be a journalist.
Digital, mobile and social media have transformed the business and our future-proof, professionally-accredited course is primarily focused on your employability, ready to turn you into someone who can utilize all the skills and techniques necessary to make your mark in any area of the journalism and communications industry.

Our Journalism, Publishing and PR courses are ranked 8th in the United Kingdom by the Guardian University Guide 2020 and will help you become ambitious, informed and versatile media professionals ready to succeed in any newsroom, platform or media organisation.

Career opportunities

We put employability at the front of the centre of the course and from the outset, aiming to prepare you for a potential future career in the media. The learning environment should recreate a working rolling news environment, with live assignments and deadlines; it is purposefully designed to try and equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to work in a professional multi-platform newsroom.

We will provide you with guidance to find and produce real stories across different forms of media and our current industry accreditation* means that you should be strongly supported when seeking work placements and internships**.

Meanwhile, by exploring journalism and communication skills you should have the opportunity to develop throughout the course and this should prepare you for a wide range of potential future careers in other areas, such as PR, social media content and marketing, politics, commercial business and publishing.

You should benefit from field trips** and guest speakers who could help you further your career. While our FAH Futures employment team is on hand, when available, to offer tailored support if you wish to seek to gain employment or look at professional practice opportunities within course-specific industries. Our dedicated enterprise officers also offer valuable assistance on how to begin as a freelancer/entrepreneur.
