Alumni testimonial:

"When I look back to studying journalism at the University of Gloucestershire, I recall learning the basics from the best industry professionals out there in the field and putting them into practice with the comfort of some the best support by my side. When I didn't believe in my abilities, they did, and that's what made my time at university so utterly fantastic. They believe in every single person from the moment they walk through that door.

"From recording my own radio bulletin and getting to grips with the crazy language of shorthand, to finally, having the confidence to walk into my first newsroom and say, ‘I am now a qualified multimedia journalist.’ It was the best thing I have ever done and I wouldn't change it for the world."
