    I'd try asking local papers,or even better try to start your own school newspaper (or volunteer to work on it if you've got one already!)Unis love that kinda thing :rolleyes: It would be wicked if you could get in with the BBC,but then again it depends where you live.

    BBC do stuff all around, but you should go for the crazy stuff, like OAP mags, Church Newspapers etc.

    I've got work exp. at a local paper this summer, only because I enquired 2 years ago though...
