"Learning how to be a journalist in nine weeks is incredibly intense, but the course leaves you feeling confident and well-prepared for the working world. The tutors are supportive and genuinely interested in seeing you succeed.

"The best thing about the course is that you know you’re learning useful skills that editors want and that other journalists don’t necessarily have. We’re living proof that you can master making an app, website and print magazine in just a few days, as well as learning shorthand, media law, subbing and more!"
