Think Highbury and think one of the best providers of journalism training in the UK.
For 50 years, the Portsmouth-based college has been running NCTJ-accredited courses producing some of the finest journalists in the country; John Pienaar, Mark Austin, Mark Easton, Isabel Hardman and Simon Reeve.
Yet a measure of the quality is to visit any newsroom nationwide where you will inevitably find someone who was trained at Highbury College.
We currently run two courses; a 20-week NCTJ FastTrack programme with September and February starts, and a one-year NCTJ programme in conjunction with the Portsmouth News, where the one-year students are based.
Highbury is also in the process of offering a two-year HND (Creative Media) course starting this autumn and the NCTJ Level 3 apprenticeship.
Our lecturers are all trained journalists and the courses are very much industry-focussed, working closely with regional newspapers, news agencies, along with the BBC, Meridian TV and Sky TV.
That’s Solent TV station, broadcasting to the south coast, is based at Highbury, strengthening our broadcast options.
Course fees for 2015/16 have been frozen at £1,799 for 19 to 23-year-olds and £2,800 for over-24s. 24-Plus learning loans are available to cover tuition fees. Highbury also offers an impressive Hall of Residence, providing first class student accommodation for £85 a week.
Come to Highbury, and you will be guaranteed first class training in an impressive multi-media environment where you can take the first step on the career ladder into journalism.
