DO YOU WANT TO BE A JOURNALIST BUT DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START?
Have you got what it takes to become a journalist?
Don’t know where to go to study?
We know It’s a minefield for all budding hacks who want to kickstart their journalism career at the right college or university, and pick the right course.
With so many courses to choose from, you can often as a newbie feel overwhelmed and frustrated at having to search from website to website to find something that suits you.
Well, now, the tearing your hair out stops…
The Journalism Course Finder App Version 1.0
A new iPhone application enables people to quickly search a list of top NCTJ courses using the Apple search function, and, then, enquire directly to that institution in a flash seconds after.
You can also take a short survey to see whether you have what it takes to become a hack.
Most of the courses listed on the app are National Council for Training of Journalists accredited, and are from the top universities and private colleges in the UK.
Thousands of foreign students come to the UK each year to study journalism, so this app is not only for those who are already in the UK, but also for those who are from outside the UK also wanting to find a course suitable for them.
The advantage of this app is that all the right courses are in the palm of your hand, and you have all the information contained for those institutions when searching the courses.
See a course you like? Just enquire right there and then by phoning up the institution or emailing direct from your phone.
The survey is an extra feature which asks a series of questions regarding your suitability for the profession.
When I talk to people, I get…
Nervous, anxious, more talkative…

The idea came about after realising that people spend hours searching the web looking for the right journalism courses online.
But now, they have a list of courses and contacts in their pocket!
Never has it been easier to find the right course by the invention of mobile technology.
