Does anyone have any experience with the News Associates' fast track to journalism courses..? After doing a BA and a Master's in English, is it worth it? In other words, is the course really a good way of getting into the field or does a second Master's do the same job? My understanding is that the diploma would be more practical, but is it as prestigious? Also, how are the entrance exams/ is it hard to get in?
I'm currently working on the production side at a news agency, but I find it challenging to land a proper journalism post without any previous experience etc. I'm starting my Master's next autumn so I'm just weighing my options thereafter. A 'real' profession would be nice just in case the academic career backfires
Hopefully there's someone around who's done the course or knows more about it than I do, I couldn't find much by quickly searching the forum.
Who do you think it is...
