"It's hard to believe how much you learn in 17 short weeks, and although the work can be intense, it was also so much fun.
"You are prepared from the very first day in all of the many skills you need to use as a journalist and as well as being taught knowledge needed for exams, you're also given so much practical experience, which is one of the reasons I chose the course in the first place."
