Student information

So, you want to be a journalist…

The Institute offers a warm welcome to students on journalism courses.

Please look around our site and see the facilities and information that may help you on your academic studies and give you pointers on what to expect when you start work.

The Institute has all kinds of journalists among its members: reporters, writers, broadcasters, photographers, editors and bloggers.  Not only does it represent their interests, it also campaigns for press freedom and for journalists to do their job without threat or hindrance. In doing so, it follows a strictly non-party political path.

You can read about the grades of membership open to you and the special deals we can offer those just starting out in the profession. We would love you to join us in the most prestigious organisation for journalists – the Chartered Institute.
