Practical Magazine Journalism

Our Magazine option is offered as part of our highly successful NCTJ-accredited Multimedia Fast-Track Journalism Diploma course.

This 18-week course is held twice a year (January and August) and gives you all the skills necessary for a career in journalism, whichever route you choose in the future.

You can opt to spend part of that course specialising in magazines. This option has been tailored to encompass the extensive magazine market, including B2B, consumer, specialist and supplements. Areas covered range from news, politics and social affairs to lifestyle, travel, food, fashion and celebrity. You will also be encouraged to develop skills to tackle reviewing, features, news features and opinion pieces.

You will consider the place of magazines in a competing marketplace, learn about digital developments, focus groups, e-surveys, databases, message boards, social media and marketing.

As part of the full-time NCTJ Diploma course you will benefit from all the extras on offer including visits by guest speakers.

Our aim is to get you into the job you want. 

You will leave with an NCTJ Diploma and an NCTJ qualification in Practical Magazine Journalism.
