If you have a passion for news and an interest in media, along with an instinct to find and produce stories across different platforms: We will teach you to develop skills to make sense of the 24-7 online news schedules, while reporting a story accurately with honesty, integrity and creativity.
Our broadcast studios and multimedia newsrooms provide an industry setting for you to experience journalism first-hand. You’ll gain a firm understanding of media law, ethics and regulations. Furthermore, you will develop your analytical and critical skills to hone your writing, communication and research techniques.
