There will be no History of Journalism seminar on Thursday 18 December. Please take the opportunity to complete the module monitoring form instead. You will have received an e-mail explaining where to find the form. I'll be most grateful if you will take the time to fill it in.
The 2015 Daily Mail Scholarship is funded by Associated Newspapers, owners of the Daily Mail. It will be awarded to a gifted postgraduate student studying for the NCTJ accredited MA in Multimedia Journalism.
The Centre invites all students on the degree to compete for the award which is worth £5,000. The scholar will also enjoy a valuable work placement at what is generally considered to be the UK’s most successful news-gathering business.
There will be no conference for MA and 3rd year students on Tuesday October 28. Those selected to pitch on Tuesday will get their chance on Wednesday, I promise. I recommend that you spend the spare half hour reading newspapers with even more care than usual
