Sports Journalism

Wembley. The Olympic Stadium. Lord’s. Wimbledon. Twickenham. Have you ever dreamed of working as a sports writer there? Well, our Sports Journalism degree students have reported from all of these iconic venues in the past few years. Our course offers an exciting but practical, hands-on approach to learning how to report on sport. By the time you finish your degree, you’ll be fully trained as a multi-platform journalist, ready to write for newspapers, magazines, radio, television, the internet and mobile apps. During our course, you could end up interviewing the England cricket captain. Or reporting on a Football League match. Or being taken on a tour of Wembley or Sky Studios. Or, here in London’s Olympic heartland, writing a feature from the University of East London's £21 million SportsDock facility for our website, Rising East. Guided by expert lecturers and tutors who are all working sports journalists, we aim to develop your passion and knowledge of sport so that you can deliver and share it with others. If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a BA, you can study this course as an ‘extended’ four-year course. You'll begin by taking a foundation year which will prepare you for a successful transition to the BA degree.
