TOP REVIEWS FROM WHAT IS NEWS?
I learned a lot about news I didn't know before I started and that was my goal. I don't agree with peer review process it lacks the expertise of the faculty whom we are learning from.
This is a great jumping off point. The modules are manageable for tight time availability, the assignments are approachable and the staff are very engaging. Would definitely recommend.
Very rich in content and directional! The idea of what is news is no longer a brain cracking one, but well understood to the point of liking and practicing news writing. Good one!
The content is very good and the lecturers are excellent. Being a business journalist without academic training in journalism I learnt a lot and learnt the necessary skillls I use daily.
