Briefing for 2018 Sky News Bob Friend Scholarship


Attention all undergraduates.

We'll be holding a briefing for the 2018 Sky News Bob Friend Scholarship on Tuesday 12 December at 1300 in the main newsroom. (UPDATE: now in the small newsroom because of the NCTJ sports journalism exam).

This is a unique and immensely valuable opportunity open to all undergraduate students in the Centre - first, second and third years. The winner will spend a month long, fully funded placement at Sky News. They will also receive a £3,000 contribution to their tuition fees. Beyond these rewards there is, of course, the prestige and glory of being a member of the tiny and highly select band of Sky Bob Friend Scholars.

NCTJ Law - attention Year 2s and MAs

If you were not at last Friday's classes, please go to Nicola's office and pick up an EML exam test paper. They are in a blue box file marked "Sarah" on top of the filing cabinet.  This is the first of the test papers we'll be working through prior to your exam in January so it's really important that you bring your paper - and your McNae - to your Friday class.  

NCTJ Awards triumph for Boglarka

Congratulations to BA Journalism graduate Boglarka Kosztolanyi, who last night won the prestigious National Council for the Training of Journalists Award for Student Project of the Year.

Centre for Journalism staff were out in force at the ceremony at Hampton Court Palace to support Boglarka, who had been nominated for her superb third-year project Echoes of Horror - a multimedia investigation into the rise of the far right in eastern Europe and the fears of those who survived the concentration camps of World War 2 that history might be repeating itself.

Sky News political correspondent Sophie Ridge presented the awards, and Boglarka's project was praised by a judging panel of senior journalists for its  investigative rigour and use of immersive multimedia storytelling techniques.
