In four simple lessons, you'll progress from publishing history and media technology through to editing, law, features and page layout. Unlike other journalism courses, this one is designed to be both practical and flexible.
It operates on self-study basis, so you can take in your journalism lessons on a flexible basis whenever it suits you. During the course, you'll be creating a workbook, which will be yours to take away with you as a handy reference guide.
