    Hi! I would like to know what are the best cities to be a journalism student in? I have already looked into some unis like Portsmouth, Sheffield and Nottingham Trent; I would prefer a course accredited by NCTJ and there's none in London. I am a foreign student so I don't know if my choices so far are good, because I don't know if a lot of events are in the cities mentioned already. Thanks for the help! x

    Hi eemilia


    Great news you're thinking about Nottingham Trent. What course are you looking at doing?

    NTU offers either Broadcast (BJTC accredited) or Print (NCTJ accredited). I studied Broadcast at NTU for my undergraduate degree and the practical elements of the course are very good - producing news stories to real deadlines in newsdays, getting out in the city and interviewing the public and getting training for a range of tech and softwares like Adobe suite, cameras, even learning short hand if you take print.

    If you're unsure about which city, have a look at the course content for all of your options so far, and compare which one you think you would gain the most from as there are bound to be differences between them.

    If you have any specific questions let me know and I'll try and help!
