Journalism PgDip/MA: Work placements

Getting experience in the workplace

Your work placement will give you the chance to apply your skills in a real newsroom and make important industry contacts. Current Kingston journalism students have taken full advantage of the University's London location to work at national daily and Sunday newspapers and high-profile glossy magazines.

Where you do your work placement is up to you. Kingston is just 20 minutes from central London, home to all the country's national daily newspapers, big circulation magazines and cutting-edge online news operations. Students on Kingston's well-established BA Journalism degree have worked on a wide range of titles, including:

  • The Times;
  • The Daily Telegraph;
  • The Independent;
  • Daily Mail;
  • Daily Express;
  • Times Online;
  • BBC World Service;
  • Haymarket Magazines;
  • IPC Magazines;
  • EMAP; and
  • local newspapers.

Students have also undertaken successful and stimulating jobs outside the UK: for example, at:

  • 7 Days, a Dubai daily newspaper;
  • Agence France Presse, the French news agency in Paris;
  • Seychelles Broadcasting; and
  • United Daily Issue, Taiwan.
