Does anyone know any UK newspapers that run graduate training schemes?
Thanks in advance.

Regional papers- ones owned by Trinity Mirror may offer some but not very many! Also Financial Times and The Times but these are seriously competitive.
There are lots of groups of local papers owned by the same publisher- try Benn's Media Directory and Willet's Press Guide (in local library) and call companies up.
I think most places recruit from NCTJ course graduates though.

Because most nationals only take a small handful (often 1 or 2) graduates, I don't know if there's a formal graduate training scheme. I have friends who've started at Times and Sunday Times (with just undergrad degrees, no Postgrad Dip/NTCJ) who've just got stuck in from day one.

Well, Chassez is right, only the odd person gets in with the national, but on the Times website it says something about the trainees rotating departments (ie home news, international news, politics etc) every few months for the first year or two, and this is probably a good way to get trained.
I would advise you to go to your career dept. as they should have a brochure of regionals doing training schemes. I have one somewhere and will try to find it and post what it says.
