Diploma in News Reporting

   Online Course

News reporters who are multi-talented and multi-skilled are in big demand internationally. This diploma course gives you the skills you need to report in print, on radio, across social media platforms and on television.

All news reporters need to be able to write good copy – but that’s not enough nowadays. You also need to be able to take great photos, shoot video footage, record and edit packages for radio, do live television interviews from the scene of a crime and write for social media platforms.

In addition, you need to understand the legal constraints on reporters and know how the media works.

This Diploma course will give you the skills necessary to work as a news reporter across all media.
