Working as a journalist is always challenging and exciting. It requires a curiosity about everything going on around you, the ability to talk to people from all walks of life and a desire to bring to light what’s going on in the world at all levels, from local community issues to global events.
Leeds Trinity University’s Centre for Journalism has an established reputation for outstanding vocational training, industry-relevant studies and leading academic research. You’ll be taught by experienced journalists who have worked across media platforms and you’ll network with the UK’s leading journalists during our annual Journalism and Media Week.
The results speak for themselves. We consistently develop accomplished journalists with multi-platform news skills. Our graduates are strongly represented in the BBC, commercial radio and television, as well as in newspaper, magazine and online newsrooms throughout the UK and beyond. Could that be you?
Undergraduate Journalism courses:
We’re one of only a few UK universities to include professional work placements with every degree. We’ll work with you to find a placement that matches your career aspirations, giving you the chance to graduate with professional experience without taking a sandwich year out.
Our Journalism students complete their placements in newspapers, news agencies, broadcasting organisations, press offices and social media roles. Recent students have secured placements at organisations including the BBC, Sky Sports, The Sunday Times, Daily Mail, The Sun and The Yorkshire Post – to name just a few.
Journalism Interview Day
If you've applied to study Journalism or Broadcast Journalism, you'll be invited to attend an Interview Day before we make you an offer. These two courses are professionally accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) and Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) respectively.
This accreditation requires an interview before an offer can be made, but it’s also a key indicator of the high quality of our course, as NCTJ and BTJC accreditation is confirmation that our degrees meet the ‘gold standard’ of Journalism training.
You'll receive an invitation to attend an Interview Day from our Admissions Team within two weeks of us receiving your application.
