I'm a third year humanities student, and I'm hoping to apply for my NCTJ course after uni finished (2014 as I do a placement year). I want to do a fast-track course, and I don't want to do a masters which includes accreditation.
What I'm struggling to work out is which is actually the most highly regarded course. As I understand it, I could study at a private college (like Press Associates), where the course will cost around £4000, or at a FE college (like Lambeth) where it will cost around £1000. As a Londoner, Lambeth (rated 2nd of FE colleges) is appealing to me, but I wonder if anyone can tell me anything more about the differences or respect given to the courses?
At the moment my top courses (in no particular order) are:
Press Association training - London/Newcastle
News Associates - London/Manchester
Highbury College - Portsmouth (I understand this to be a good one??)
Lambeth College - London
If anyone could help I'd be really really grateful. Thanks

I'm going into my second year at Bournemouth, it's NCTJ accredited (it does the NCTJ degree) and it also does a broadcasting qualification on top of your degree

I believe the Masters at University Of Ulster, Coleraine is the top rated post-graduate degree in the UK for Journalism but you might not want to come across to NI
