Best place to study journalism in UK
« on: December 08, 2008, 07:56:05 PM »
Hello, I'm from Lithuania and I decided to study journalism in UK. I'm 17 now and I'm working like a professional journalist in Lithuania, in biggest sport portal. So It's really important to me. I hope to get interesting opinions about best places to study journalism.

By the way, there is small list of my favorites universities, but if really, I don't know a lot about those.

Hi Daniq,

We have a directory of full time journalism courses on our site, which can search by course type, subject, full/part-time/distance, and institution name. Here's a link for you

Hello, thank you, I founded a lot of interesting information. But what about opinions from real life? What is most prestigious university in UK, where I can study journalism? :)

I'm doing Business in Cardiff University (hoping to get me NCTJ after I graduate). I know Cardiff University does an excellent journalism course (I’m not just being biased), and I've heard good things about London College of Communication and City University (London). As I said, I’m not doing a journo course myself, so I may not be the best one to answer, but that's just my 2 cents.......

One thing I will say is, have a think whether you really want to study straight Journalism, a lot of the editors I’ve met believe it teaches the theory and not the practical (no offence to anyone doing journalism, it’s just what I’ve heard!), subjects like History and Politics are other good routes in.

I did my journalism postgraduate diploma at Cardiff. It's an excellent place to study. I have no knowledge of undergraduate courses though - I did my degree in another subject.

Thanks for your opinions. What about if I have knowledge, but I want to know more, be professional, one of the top? :) City and Cardiff will be in my TOP 6 universities. ;)

Hi Daniq,

I'm currently doing an MA in International Journalism at City. It's great and has a good reputation. But it is very intensive. I also considered Cardiff and LCC (London College of Communication).

Hope this helps,

Sheffield University is top in the country for the BA Journalism degree according to The Times Good University Guide 2009, and it also  came top in the latest National Student Survey. Its postgraduates also have a history of getting jobs at top national and international organisations including the BBC, the Guardian and the Independent. And the course  plus the cost of living in Sheffield  is cheaper than most of its rivals...
