In the latest of our series of interviews with recent Centre for Journalism graduates, Kishan Koria talks about landing a job with ITV's Peston on Sunday before he had graduated - and having to take time off work to take his exams.
Today at 1pm we're welcoming former regional newspaper editor Rebecca Smith to the CfJ newsroom. Rebecca now works for Kent Business School here at the university, and will be introducing the ASPIRE project, which aims to encourage student entrepreneurs to develop their ideas for commercial and social enterprise ventures - and, crucially, to help provide them with funding.
She'll be giving a short, 10-minute presentation to introduce the scheme at 1pm in the main undergraduate newsroom. All undergraduate and postgraduate students are encouraged to attend.
Third year students from our undergraduate programme are working on an assessed news day today. They'll be producing a 16-page newspaper between them by 5pm - and during the day they are also running a live news web site.
When we launched KMTV last year as a joint venture between the CfJ and the KM Group, we hoped that it would prove a fertile training ground for our students as they prepare for journalism careers.
And last night's airing of the first edition of sports magazine show Team Talk on KMTV is an indication of just how well this premise is working.
We like a bit of reflected glory here at the Centre for Journalism, so hearty congratulations go to Jayna Rana (MA Multimedia Journalism 2015) who this week won the Trade Journalist of the Year title at the Association of Investment Companies Media Awards for her work on Investment Week.
Great work Jayna.
