The Centre for Journalism at Leeds Trinity University has a long-standing reputation for vocational training and industry-relevant studies.
It offers postgraduate (MA/PG Dip) degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Print/Digital Journalism, and undergraduate (BA Hons) degrees covering a range of journalism disciplines including magazine, broadcast, and sport, with some pathways accredited by the NCTJ and BJTC.
The Centre’s reputation is built on the success of its postgraduate provision. Trainees on these courses are given the skills and knowledge needed to hit the ground running in the workplace. The online, print and broadcast industries are highly competitive, but our excellent links with employers mean they tell us – and help us deliver – exactly what our trainees need to get a job. We consistently produce accomplished, legally aware journalists with multi-platform news skills.
Our alumni are strongly represented in the BBC, commercial radio and television, and newspaper and magazine newsrooms across Yorkshire and the rest of the country.
The Leeds Trinity University Centre for Journalism’s continuing partnership with many major news organisations, including BBC North in Salford, ensures access to the best quality placements, mentoring opportunities and expert industry speakers.
The courses provide a thorough grounding in the techniques of website production, broadcast news, and writing for newspapers and magazines. Trainees work in dedicated newsrooms and studios, with all trainees taking roles of responsibility as editors, reporters, producers or presenters. Trainees on all pathways are expected to produce online video, audio and written material for the course’s main news website.
Trainees on the MA/PG Dip Broadcast Journalism course spend a period on air with Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB 106.6FM) during which they produce bulletins in real time against real deadlines. They also produce “Yorkshire Voice”, a live regional TV news programme and associated website that showcases video and online skills. Leeds Trinity has run the course with Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) accreditation for 23 years, and it is expected to undergo accreditation again in 2016-17.
Trainees following the Print and Digital pathway produce the daily news site Yorkshire Voice. They also work as Leeds district community reporters in collaboration with the Yorkshire Evening Post. In short, we don’t just talk about it: we do it! The Print and Digital pathway has National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) accreditation.
The website also includes details about the University’s undergraduate courses.
