Sport Journalism - University of Brighton

Many aspiring sports reporters dream of reporting live from a Premier League press box, and our students get this opportunity through our exclusive links with Arsenal and Brighton and Hove Albion FC. Our Sport Journalism course will develop the skills you need for this exciting industry, including news writing, match reporting, digital skills and shorthand. In addition to your degree, you will take the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) Diploma in Journalism, a widely recognised entry-level qualification for professional practice. The course is taught by media industry professionals and highly respected academics. You’ll learn using our industry-standard facilities, which include a new 40-station newsroom, multimedia suite, and live satellite sports and news feeds. You’ll benefit from field trips which have included The American Express Community Stadium, The Times HQ and the Copper Box at The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and our guest lecture programme, which has previously included Sky Sports’ Jim White, Clare Balding, Nick Davies, former England cricket captain Mike Atherton and Paul Hayward, Chief Sportswriter at The Daily Telegraph. Your work placement will give you experience, helping you make vital industry contacts. Previous students have spent time with organisations including Sky Sports News, The Daily Telegraph and The Sun. You can participate in the running of our journalism website overtimeonline.co.uk which will act as a showcase for your writing. You can get involved in subediting, writing headlines, learn to produce video and audio, and develop your multimedia skills.
