Applying to study with us



postgraduate newsroom LizzieAt the Centre for Journalism, we know what it takes to make it as a professional journalist.

That's why we run a unique admissions process that takes into account your academic ability, your passion for the subject, your determination, your nose for news, and your knowledge of the news agenda.

It includes a one-to-one interview with a member of staff and a two-hour written test that examines your grammar, your news sense, your writing ability and your knowledge of current affairs.

We'll never make an offer without seeing you face-to-face (or talking to you if you're an international applicant who can't travel to us first).

It's a tough process, because the career we're preparing you for is tough. But if you really want to succeed in journalism, we'll recognise that.

For undergraduate applicants we'll usually make an offer at BBB (in adacedmically rigorous A-Level subjects), or IB 34 points. But each applicant is considered on their own merits.

We also welcome applications from international students with internationally recognised qualifications. A high level of English (equivalent to a native speaker) is essential. You can find further information on English requirements here.

You can apply online here for the BA (Hons) Journalism.

For postgraduate applicants we expect a first degree at 2:1 or better in a suitable subject.

You can apply online here for the MA in Multimedia Journalism or here for the International Multimedia Journalism.

To apply for our Year in Journalism, all you need to do is to fill in this short form and we will be in touch with you shortly.
