Rachel Bartlett is the NCTJ Alumna of the Month for March
Rachel Bartlett completed the three-year course at BU in 2010 and is now editor of Journalism.co.uk, which is a popular resource for good practice and innovation in digital journalism.
Speaking to the NCTJ website, Rachel elaborated on why she chose Bournemouth as the best place to study to become a journalist.
“My decision was driven by the fact that I was keen to ensure I entered the industry with a range of skills across media platforms, including newspapers, magazines, television, radio and online, and the ability to study for, and take, NCTJ exams at the same time.
“I went to university fairly open-minded about what area of the industry I wanted to go into, and the variety of the course helped guide me in terms of which areas I was most interested in.”
