What’s the teaching style of your Journalism faculty at the University of Salford

Most of our teaching for our Journalism and PR degree courses is practical, using demonstrations and exercises of journalistic techniques and practices in small group settings. The theoretical elements of the course are taught through lectures and seminars. In the 2nd and 3rd year, students undertake news days and major projects, and are supervised by lecturers on a one-to-one basis. 

How will the Journalism faculty support my learning and development?

You will be assigned a personal tutor who will support you through your three years on the course. Your personal tutor will arrange regular tutorials to discuss your progress and help with any problems you may be having, and will be your mentor for news days and the Major Journalism Project in the final year of the course. In addition, all members of the Journalism faculty are available to respond to students questions and to support them through their studies, and to provide support and guidance for careers and employability.
