Journalism: University Study & Careers In Journalism – Graduates Tell Their Story With Goldsmiths, University Of London
20th October 2020 @ 13:00 - 13:45
In this webinar we connect with Goldsmiths, University of London, who will introduce their Journalism courses before we connect with one or two of their graduates who are working in the field.
This is a great chance for Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) to hear about undergraduate Journalism study, the graduates’ university experience, and how this has prepared them for their current roles.
There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions and to find out about the decisions the university alumni have made since they were in Year 12 to successfully embark upon, and establish themselves in, their careers. The alumni have experience working at The Independent, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and PopBuzz and so both have a great knowledge of media in print/online.
The schedule for the session is:
- 1pm – Introduction to Journalism at Goldsmiths
- 1.10pm – Q&A with Goldsmiths Journalism Alumni
- 1.40pm – Questions from participants
Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.
Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 (and equivalent) students with a possible interest in Journalism. Teachers and members of school staff, as always, are welcome too, particularly where you are joining as a group along with your students.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: There is no specific preparation required although please do feel free to send us any questions you have in advance about study and careers in Journalism.
The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices.
