    Has anyone applying for broadcast journalism received offers yet? If so where from and what's your first choice?
    I've had all of my offers now and want to know where other people are going.
    I've applied for broadcast journalism at Leeds, Nottingham Trent, Brighton and Salford, and multimedia journalism at Bournemouth.

    Hey!

    Yeah, I've applied for Leeds, Nottingham Trent, Staffordshire (all broadcast journalism) and Sheffield (journalism).

    I've got conditional offers from Leeds (my first choice and the one I reeeeally want to go to), Staffordshire and Sheffield, and I've got an interview at Nottingham Trent next month

    Leeds is my 1st choice too! I just really need to get the grades heads up for Nottingham Trent you have to write 250 words on why you want to be a broadcast journalist and then they give you 6 news stories and weather you have to pick 3 stories most related to Nottingham and record them as well as the weather at the end good luck!

    Hi Alice, I've applied to the same Universities as you, and the same courses. So far I've only had an off from Brighton - conditional, and interview offers from Nottingham Trent and Salford. Leeds is probably my first choice and I'm dying to hear from them, when did you?

    Hey, I've applied to study broadcast journalism too and I've received all of my offers.

    I am currently debating between: University of Leeds or Nottingham Trent, as I am from the Leeds area anyway and it is an absolutely fantastic city if you're moving into it. However, personally I'm not sure whether I should move further away to another city.

    Nottingham Trent facilities were absolutely brilliant, although Leeds Uni itself is very prestigious and I much prefer the accomodation.

    Are most people putting Leeds as their firm choice?

    Leeds were really late at replying to me, I didn't hear from them until nearly 2 months after I sent off my UCAS.

    I'm predicted ABB and I had mine on the 18th December! The lady is really nice I cant remember her name now, but she worked in America in New York reporting on Barrack Obama when he became President. In the interview you volunteer when to go and go in groups of three---- take a portfolio, I didn;t have one and was with 2 girls that did she asks questions and take them in turns to answer them. I cant remember all of them but here's a couple! Why Salford? Why Broadcast Journalism? Who's your favourite Journalist? What expereince do you have? What story would you have liked to have covered over the past year? And that's all I can remember! I think there was meant to be an english test too but the interviews went on for 2 hours so we didn't do one! Good luck!

    Yeah haha! Just take anything with you that you've done relevant to the course. The two girls I was with had so much experience, one has her own radio show the other had reported for her local newspaper for a music event in their area (they were friends) so were bouncing off each other with all these sheets flying about of things they'd done! But they were both nervous like shakey voices and I was pretty chilled and calm so don't get worked up about it. I know that one of them has had an offer but the other hasn't heard back.

    *****es. I hate them already. I do a newspaper thing at school but I've only written 3 short articles for it because I started it this year and it's monthly. 3 articles is hardly a portfolio? it's not my first choice anyway. I don't even want to go there so I reckon I'll be cool about it anyway. Haha. I already feel loads better about it :') thanks.
