Working as a journalist is 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 shed light on what's going on in the world at all levels – from your local community to international politics.

Our Centre for Journalism has an established reputation for outstanding vocational training, industry-relevant studies and excellent professional work placements at organisations such as BBC, Sky, and The Sunday Times.

The arrival of Channel 4 in Leeds last year presents even more opportunities for journalism students and graduates.

I really liked the fact that everything is on one site. The facilities on offer for my course were top class and the fact we got guest speakers for Journalism Week really appealed to me.

Learn from the professionals

You'll learn from experienced journalists who have worked across all media platforms, and you'll network with some of the UK's leading journalists during our annual Journalism and Media Week.

The results speak for themselves.

We consistently help students develop into 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.

Placement opportunities

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.

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.
