If you head a media studies-related course, or you know someone that does, then you need to take a look at the SJA website’s extensive courses and training section and ensure that your institution’s listing is up to date.
With the help of SJA member Rob Steen, senior lecturer in sports journalism at Brighton University, and one of his students, Henry Milward, sportsjournalists.co.uk is updating and upgrading is training and courses section.
Our special section of advice and information on training and courses aims at encouraging the brightest journalism students to plot their career path to working in sport.
The unique resource already includes a lengthy list of sports media work experience opportunities for students and first-jobbers and how to apply for them â€” from placements on the sports desks of national newspapers, to internships with television stations, specialist magazines, government agencies and sports websites.
A key element of this free-to-access resource is a thorough listing of media, journalism, broadcasting and sports journalism courses in the UK â€” from intensive journalism training courses to vocational courses, media-related degrees and post-graduate offerings.
To ensure that the course that you run receives a basic listing, you will need to advise Milward, the section editor, of your details: course title, entry requirement, UCAS code (where applicable), duration, website link and contact details (phone and email for course leader).
In addition to the basic listing, the SJA also offers an eye-catching opportunity, including a detailed breakdown of the course written by you, for a modest annual fee. Deadline for all submissions is February 19.
For all enquiries on sportsjournalists.co.uk’s students section, contact Henry Milward on 07946 572894 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
