London School of Journalism - Summer School
1 - 26 August 2011

Our Summer School is held every August, and is a four week intensive course in journalism and newswriting. Whether you are an overseas student or based in the UK, this course provides a unique opportunity for you to acquire the fundamental skills required and receive professional journalism training in small, friendly groups, while at the same time enjoying the sights and culture of London.

The topics covered include:
- News and newswriting
- Reports
- English law
- Professional ethics
- Broadcast journalism (TV and Radio)
- Sports
- Interviewing
- Gossip columns and reviews
- Magazines
- Going Freelance
- Feature articles

You will have the benefit of group discussions and lively question and answer sessions, seminars conducted by our professional team of writers and journalists and lectures from outside guest speakers.

As part of this course we will arrange for you to visit a newspaper production plant to see a national 'Daily' in operation or a visit to the BBC to see the News in action. You will also visit local magistrates courts, exhibitions, museums or art galleries - and report on what you see.

The Summer School for 2011 commences with registration on Monday, 1 August 2011 at 10am, and finishes (having had lunch and drinks in the Courtyard) on Friday, 26 August 2011.
