Stationers' Foundation Postgraduate Bursary sticky icon

I'm delighted to be able to confirm that students studying for the MA in Multimedia Journalism in 2014/15 will be eligible to apply for a postgraduate bursary funded by the Stationers' Foundation. The foundation is the charitable arm of the Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers which has been involved in the training and education of entrants to the printing and publishing industries since 1557. The award, which is worth £6,000 plus support and mentoring, will be made on the basis of financial need and academic potential. The Centre for Journalism is proud to be associated with the Stationers' Foundation and to be able to offer this valuable bursary.

Further details of all funding opportunties for Centre for Journalism students are available here.

Colossal cash prizes on offer in first ever Centre for Journalism movie challenge sticky icon


The Centre for Journalism movie challenge invites you make a short film of no more than 3’00" duration. The subject: a student’s-eye view of life in the Centre. We don’t want the details of the degree. We don’t want anything dull, technical or bureaucratic. We want your best depiction of the stuff that makes the Centre’s students unique. What makes studying here fun? What do journalism students do when you are not studying?  Where do you live? What do you eat and drink? Where do you dance, play sport or just relax? We want you to sell the student experience in the Centre for Journalism as colourfully and entertainingly as you can. We’ll use the best films to market and recruit students. So, apart from money (see below) and our undying gratitude, what’s in it for you? Well, it could be the prelude to your first BAFTA, perhaps even the launch of an Oscar-winning career.  We have heard (well, OK, invented) rumours that Vanessa Paradis and Jonny Depp are demanding that their agents secure parts for them.

Congratulations on excellent NCTJ law results!

Congratulations to the  twenty-three Year 2 and MA students who passed last month's NCTJ Court Reporting exam. We had almost a clean sweep of passes with 12 peple gaining Grade A. Special mention to Stine Wannebo and Jasmin Sahota who, with 87%, are now joint holders of the highest- ever mark by a CfJ student in an NCTJ law exam (sorry Jem!). Very well done to all.
