Haymarket projects

The journalism department has a successful partnership with Haymarket Network, the customer publishing division of Haymarket Publishing. Haymarket runs an annual project for students in conjunction with the department.

Students apply to take part in the projects, which in the past have involved:

  • developing a magazine for the British youth market;
  • producing a magazine to launch a band for Universal Music; and
  • conceiving a website for travellers in association with The Rough Guides.

Participants can compete for Haymarket Fellowships, which come with a substantial cash prize. Several students who have worked on the projects have secured jobs at Haymarket after graduation.

Guest speakers

We also regularly host speakers from the journalism industry.  Read more in the Events and lectures section.
