We like a bit of reflected glory here at the Centre for Journalism, so hearty congratulations go to Jayna Rana (MA Multimedia Journalism 2015) who this week won the Trade Journalist of the Year title at the Association of Investment Companies Media Awards for her work on Investment Week.
As per my emails to all students on 23 September and 26 September, your SDS timetable is not currently showing the non-academic/NCTJ modules (which include Conference and Shorthand). I attached a paper copy of the timetable showing all the modules to both my emails. I am still receiving emails from students who say they have missed classes because they were not aware of them as they were not showing on SDS. If you need a paper copy of the timetable please come and get one from my office and PLEASE READ YOUR EMAILS.
If you have just joined us then welcome to the Centre For Journalism! We hope you have a great time whilst you are here. If you are returning - welcome back.
My name is Lesley Phippen and I'm the new International Student Mentor for the Centre for Journalism. My role is to offer any help, guidance or support you may need. Please do call in to my office any time or send an email if you want to make an appointment. I will be ably assisted by two international student friends - Duarte Dias and Anita Nkonge. They will be around later this week and I will be saying more about them in my blog on Wednesday.
