Are you an international student?

Gain dynamic and industry relevant training that prepares you for a career in the media industry on one of the UK's longest running journalism courses. From the start, we treat you not just as a student but as a working journalist and challenge you to produce work of a high standard so you can excel in a newsroom environment. 
Convergence is the key word in modern news so you'll research and create content for a range of media including radio, TV, online and print. The course is constantly updated to reflect the fast-changing needs of news organisations as the digital revolution unfolds. 

You'll gain valuable industry experience with a work placement where you can apply your knowledge to a real media environment. You'll also help to produce an annual magazine which is distributed throughout Edinburgh. You will learn how to write news stories and longer features articles; you will learn how to work in radio and television journalism and you will learn about digital journalism, creating your own website (there’ll also be the chance to get to grips with coding).
