The supervisors for Year 3 projects have now been allocated. See the list below (also available on Moodle). Please make an appointment for a preliminary chat with your supervisor this week.
Year 3 students from the BA Journalism course are once again working on an assessed newsday. This afternoon they will be broadcasting 2 hours of live radio from the centre's newsroom. And throughout the day they will be updating their New Perspectives web site and its associated social media accounts.
In the latest of our series of interviews with recent Centre for Journalism graduates, Kishan Koria talks about landing a job with ITV's Peston on Sunday before he had graduated - and having to take time off work to take his exams.
Today at 1pm we're welcoming former regional newspaper editor Rebecca Smith to the CfJ newsroom. Rebecca now works for Kent Business School here at the university, and will be introducing the ASPIRE project, which aims to encourage student entrepreneurs to develop their ideas for commercial and social enterprise ventures - and, crucially, to help provide them with funding.
She'll be giving a short, 10-minute presentation to introduce the scheme at 1pm in the main undergraduate newsroom. All undergraduate and postgraduate students are encouraged to attend.
Third year students from our undergraduate programme are working on an assessed news day today. They'll be producing a 16-page newspaper between them by 5pm - and during the day they are also running a live news web site.
