University of Kent tops journalism National Student Survey table

The University of Kent's BA in Journalism is officially the country's most appreciated undergraduate programme - according to the results of this year's National Student Survey.

The 2020 NSS saw our journalism degree score a massive 97.67% in oversall satisfaction - the most significant measure of a course's success according to its students. This is the best score of the 49 universities in the UK that have journalism programmes at undergraduate level.

Twitter tributes to Ron Green

So many touching tributes came in on social media following the very sad news about our former colleague Ron Green that became hard to keep up with them.

I've made a collection here of the ones that I saw on Twitter - but it's possible I missed others. Let me know if that's the case.

 

Ron Green: editor, teacher and journalism advocate

It's with great sadness that we have to pass on the very sad news of the death of Ron Green, one of the Centre for Journalism's most influential and admired figures.

Ron played a central part in establishing the culture of the CfJ, joining as a newswriting teacher soon after it was founded  and inspiring many cohorts of undergraduate and postgraduate students with his compassion, enthusiasm for news and lively teaching.

Black Lives Matter - an informal meeting

We know many of our students have been deeply affected by the appalling killing of George Floyd and by the anti-racism protests. Some of you have told us of issues this has made you think of regarding your experiences at the Centre for Journalism, at university and about the media in general.   Thank you for all your words and thoughts, which we have been reflecting on.

We would like to begin a bigger conversation with you about how the CfJ can work to ensure that all students in BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) communities feel they belong and are fully supported at the CfJ. 

We would like to invite you to an informal meeting to talk about this on Thursday 18th June at 5.30pm.  The meeting will be on Zoom.
