What We Do

The Journalism Society offers a variety of events and experiences throughout the year - These initiatives are based on our three guiding principles: Opportunity, Networking & Development.

Opportunities: provide members with access to industry experiences and publishing pathways through the society's partners. 

Networking: provide members with spaces to network with other students, career mentors and industry professionals.

Development: provide members with access to facilitated development, training and mentorship in key news competencies.
