Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
Now in its third year, our MA in Multimedia Journalism is producing journalists of the highest calibre. CfJ Masters alumni are working for blue chip employers including Sky News, The Sun, The Kent Messenger Group, Associated Newspapers, BBC Radio, ITN and the Huffington Post. The course is fully accredited by both the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Broadcast Journalism Training Council.
Entry to this highly sought-after course is intensely competitive. We're looking for students who have graduated with a good degree (2.1 or better) and have the drive and passion to join this fabulously rewarding profession. All applicants are also required to sit a two-hour admissions test.
The successful applicants will find themselves working extremely hard on this combination of vocational discipline and academic excellence. We'll put all the tools you'll need at your disposal - HD video cameras, audio recorders, radio and tv studios and full newsroom facilities - and teach you how to use them. You'll learn all the core reporting skills (including shorthand), as well as journalism production skills that will enable you to produce quality output in any medium. You'll be shooting, editing and publishing work from the very first week.
You will also have the opportunity to compete for the prestigious postgraduate Daily Mail scholarship. Other funding opportunties are also available. All details are here.
