An MA Multimedia Journalism student has secured a highly coveted internship at Associated Press.
James Brooks will spend three months with the global news network at their London offices from June.
He’ll be working across several formats during his internship, adding to earlier work experience at The Telegraph and the BBC.
James said: “I’ve been told I’ll be heading out on photo and video shoots, producing my own packages, creating text reports to be sent out on the wires, and learning from all the skilled journalists at AP in London.”
He described being selected as a “great honour” having competed against hundreds of students from other universities and colleges.
Upon securing the internship, James said the course had helped him in a variety of ways.
“The practical training, which is why I chose this course, came in handy as Associated Press want journalists who can work across a variety of different formats, be it text, video or audio.”
Applicants were required to submit a selection of multimedia work. James used work solely produced whilst on the course, including work published on The Breaker.
