    Howdy,

    So is anyone else doing Journalism in 2012,

    Where are you applying,
    What subjects/grades did you get,
    What work experience are you doing,
    What sort of course content are you looking for (TV, Radio, Print etc)
    Whats your DREAM job!

    Would really appreciate feedback, its allways about Medican or Computer Science on TSR so I thought it would be good to create our own feed.

    Be good if we could swap ideas and experience and challenge others perspectives

    I sure am
    Applied at Bournemouth, NTU, Brunel, Staffordshire and Sheffield.
    I am studying Law (B at AS), English literature (C at AS - retaking exam), Media (Got a B at A2) and philosophy (AS - not completed)
    I have run my own music website for about 2 years and do the occasional blogging.
    Print I LOVE writing!
    I would love to work in a good newspaper or magizine. Ideally I would like to travel and write about my experiances!

    My problem is that I want to combine writing with photography and I liked the journalism courses, but all my work experiance has been photography based so i've steered away from renouned journalism courses because of little work experiance even though my grades are quite good, (sheffield, NTU,) etc,
    My as grades: English Lit: A, Photography: A, Psychology: B, Media: C
    I've had offers from Sheffield Hallam,
    Sunderland (journalism with photography)
    and advertising and editorial photography - Gloustershire

    I have one choice left any ideas ?

    Ooh same I'm torn. Plus I can't decide if the reputation of Sheffield as a top uni is something crucial to consider

    I applied to Bournemouth, UCLAN and Kent too.
    Got offers from Bournemouth and UCLAN and an interview at Kent, but turned the interview down. How about you?
    Ooh well done! I've had an admissions test at Nottingham Trent and have an interview at Westminster on Feb 1st but that's it. Sheffield said I shouldn't know until about February :/

    Do you know what 2 unis you'd choose if you got all offers?

    I have applied for Leeds, Bournemouth, NTU, Sheffield and Lancaster (for english lanugae in the media- not journalism)

    And have offer so far from Leeds, Bournemouth and Lancaster.

    But I am so torn whether to put Leeds or Bournemouth as my first choice
    I have been to both and they are beautiful!
    Leeds is obviously an amazing red brick uni, but the course at Bournemouth looks slightly better as it is 'Multi Media' not just broadcast, and they look like they have better facilities for the course, such as, Macs.

    Any advice from current journalism students would be great or anyone looking to study in Sep 2012. I think I am in need of others opinions because I literally cannot decide.

    Panicked then when I saw you had an offer from Leeds but it wasn't journalism, relief :P Well done on your offers!
    I would go for Leeds as you're more likely to get job offers because it is a red brick and employers will look at that over which uni has the best facilities, but then again go where you will be happiest at!

    I'm dying about Sheffield. It'd 100% be my firm if I got an offer. Then NTU. How about you?
