A bit about Journalism at MediaCityUK…

Our award-winning students go on to thrive in industry, finding work with our neighbours at MediaCityUK and beyond.
Our degrees emphasise creativity in practice and project work with industry which also fosters collaboration between different subject disciplines. Our Masters programme is accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) and our two biggest journalism programmes by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC).
