Part-time news reportingComplete your NCTJ Diploma while working

Study one evening a week and on a Saturday

We are now offering the chance for you to study to become a journalist and acquire your much-coveted NCTJ Diploma on a new part-time course.

You will study towards the full journalism Diploma exams one evening a week from 6.30pm to 9.30pm and from 10am to 5.30pm on a Saturday.

This action-packed programme will be spread over 38 weeks and the next course starts on September 20 2016. Places are limited and are expected to fill up quickly.

You will complete the full portfolio of modules required to be awarded the NCTJ's Gold Standard Diploma qualification. There will be exams in shorthand, essential media law, court reporting, public affairs, production journalism and you will be required to complete a portfolio of published work.

Our tutors are all working journalists bringing the very latest knowledge and techniques from today's digital newsrooms into the classroom.

You will have plenty of opportunity to work on real stories during the course. There will be a requirement to complete homework assignments between sessions and to work on your shorthand outside of class time.

However, you can be sure that you will be working in a supportive environment led by a course leader very experienced in managing part-time study.

Our next course starts on September 19 2017 to June 19 2018.
