#BlackLivesMatter

Over the weekend the academic team have heard from a number of our students – both in email and in video calls - expressing strong feelings about the deplorable killing of George Floyd and the following unfolding events in the US, highlighting their concern that there hasn’t been an ‘official’ response from the department.
Thanks to all of you who have made your views felt, and for prompting an internal debate about such an important subject.
You will know that we don’t generally comment collectively on world events – but it’s clear that we should be reacting to this one.

Spoons at Victoria gets the nod for CfJ social evening

After a fierce bidding war, the Willow Walk pub right next to Victoria Station has been announced as the venue for the CfJ social gatheing next Satudray.

Weatherspoons shares rose 15% on the news.

The address is: 25 Wilton Rd, Victoria, London SW1V 1LW. Basically take the exit near platform 1 and follow your nose. Hope to see a few old and new faces there. Let us know via our Facebook event if you're planning to come - or just turn up any time from 6.30.

 

Help spread the word for our Virtual Open Day at the Centre for Journalism

Calling all Centre for Journalism students and graduates.  We're holding our first Virtual Open Day tomorrow evening as we try to find the next generation of lucky students to join the CfJ family - and we need your help in publicising it. 

We'll be livestreaming through our Youtube channel from 6.40pm on Tuesday 15 October to show prospective students and parents what life in this busy department is like, explain the admissions process, and demonstrate with real case studies the kinds of careers that can lie ahead. 

We’ll be looking in detail at our accredited BA, MA and Year in Journalism programmes, and previewing our brand new Television and Digital Video Production undergraduate programme that starts in 2020.
