Guest lectures

Our programme of guest lectures brings influential figures from the journalistic profession into the University on a weekly basis.

They represent a place where the academy welcomes key players from the media industries, and students who engage in journalism practice and study learn at first-hand about their preoccupations, concerns, and experiences. Those who report, present, manage, regulate or simply reflect on the rapidly changing media world give an insight into the industries our students aspire to join.

Currently our guest lectures are taking place online because of the Covid-19 pandemic. We'll post details here when the programme for the 2020-21 academic year is ready.
