Fashion Journalism

Share your passion for fashion with readers both online and in print. Write features, style photoshoots, report on catwalks and design fashion spreads. Graduate with a portfolio of published work to impress prospective employers from the only Fashion Journalism NCTJ accredited course in the country. Explore all areas of journalism and learn the key skills to make it as a journalist, from news writing to video journalism, the latest social media storytelling techniques to media ethics and media law. You’ll showcase your skills in your final portfolio of work creating a website, magazine, series of in-depth articles, radio or TV content. You’ll follow in the footsteps of successful graduates with placements in industry at the likes of the BBC, Sky, ITV and newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV and PR companies and fashion brands, taking advantage of our ‘placements for all’ guarantee. Bring your stories to life in the mediaHUB, our multimedia publishing and broadcasting newsroom, alongside BBC Newcastle journalists. Work on our award-winning digital publications: SR News, Northern Lights, Fashion North, SportsByte and Spark FM. Be inspired by our lecturers and their strong industry contacts, and broaden your horizons on inspiring field trips – recently students have enjoyed London fashion masterclasses. You’ll perfect your craft alongside experienced academics who have years of industry expertise at high levels in print, online and broadcasting including the BBC, Daily Mirror, Grazia, and Sky. Rub shoulders with regional and national high-profile journalists such as Kevin Maguire, Associate Editor at the Daily Mirror and Visiting Professor in Journalism at the University, and ITV News Correspondent Alastair Stewart.
