Sheffield Hallam (conditional)
Leeds Beckett (submitting a piece of journalism by 23/11 at midnight)
LJMU (shortlisted for an interview)

Yeah, me too! What date are you opting for?
I think it's because they have now renewed their NCTJ accreditation and therefore must interview in line with NCTJ guidelines.

I think I heard back about a week later. They do say that they will reply to all applications in 10 working days, so if it's been longer than that I'd give them a ring.
The admissions test was two writing task one was an essay and one was a news piece and you also need to submit an example of your own work.
Hope that helps x

Having looked at both Cardiff and Sheffield I think it depends what you want. Cardiff is more of a theoretical degree where you don't actually do any journalism you just theorise about the media whereas Sheffield prepares you for a career as a Journalist equipping you with all the various practical skills as well as media law, shorthand, ect. Also Sheffield is NCTJ accredited.

All of mine want me to go to an interview including DMU. Any idea what to expect for a Journalism interview, they all mention something in relation to the NCTJ.

Current status:

Falmouth: interview
City: interview
Portsmouth: admissions task
Goldsmiths: conditional (BBB)
London South Bank: waiting

I'm hoping to firm City if I get an offer and have to decide for insurance, probably LDN SB or Goldsmiths though.

Is anyone else going to the City Selection Day on the 7th???
