Official - Kent is simply the best for Journalism

The Centre for Journalism's BA in Journalism and the News Industry has been recognised as Britain's top performing undergraduate degree in journalism.  At an NCTJ awards ceremony in Belfast City Hall last night Prof. Tim Luckhurst and Ian Reeves were presented with a certificate confirming our top ranking in academic year 2010/11.  Tim Luckhurst said: "This award is an immense tribute to all the excellent staff in the Centre who have worked so hard to design and deliver this unique combination of professional education and academic rigour - and to the excellent students who study with us. When we launched the degree we pledged to make it the best in the country. It is particularly gratifying to know that we have beaten all the competition."
