At Highbury we place an emphasis on practical, real-world experience. You will pitch ideas, tip-offs and stories to local and national newspapers/websites, while building skills and a portfolio of published work. The essentials of journalism are covered in detail and include reporting, public affairs, media law, multimedia and shorthand. You will also be able to choose optional units, such as video and sports journalism. On the year-long Diploma, you will be based at The News’s office at Lakeside North Harbour where you will spend two days each week working in the newsroom alongside some of the best regional journalists in the business. We are also working in partnership with a local TV station, That’s Solent, and an on-going partnership with Portsmouth’s Community radio station Express FM, together with our own JAMM Radio station will enable you to gain radio experience if you are interested in broadcast journalism.
