Is NCTJ neccesary? (+ which uni?)Watch
I am putting together my application
(I´m applying for journalism) and I don´t know wether to choose an accredited course or not. How improtant is the NCTJ accreditation? Some people say it is old fashioned and unnecessary because you have to learn shorthand (which is useless), while others say that it´s improtant. So what is the truth??!
PS: I can only put 2 of these in my application (I only have 2 more places in my application left) and I don´t know which to choose: Lincoln, Northumbria, Derby. Which would you choose? (based on how good is the couse)
