Wrexham Glyndwr University’s NCTJ accredited course is an innovative partnership between the university and regional media groups offering the chance to study for the NCTJ qualifications over one or two years.
The Certificate of HE in Journalism features an action packed integrated package of practical experience and academic study with the equivalent of three months of work experience in working news rooms guided by senior journalists.
The course is based at the university in stunning North Wales but students also spend up to two days each week in a real news environment learning how to put their classroom studies into practise in the working world of news.
Students on the course study all aspects of multi-media journalism with a lecturing team drawn from working journalists. The course has been running successfully since 2008. Almost 80 per cent of our students are working as media professionals across the UK and the course is regularly praised for its integrated, newsroom approach to journalism training.
