So you want to be a journalist?


Prospective Undergraduates

The Department of Journalism at City University London would like to invite students to come to our 'taster' session, 'So you want to be a journalist?'

Why attend?

In this session we aim to give students about to start Year 12 a practical insight into studying journalism at university. 

What will happen on the day? 

The day is designed to give everyone some hands-on experience of the type of exercises you would do as a City Journalism student. You will:

  • Learn interviewing skills in a live-on-camera exercise
  • Record a short piece of radio in our broadcast studios
  • Learn how to start up a blog, and get tips on how to keep it going

The sessions will be run by our BA Journalism academic staff, most of whom have extensive experience as journalists and broadcasters.

Introducing the department
