Stephanie Carberry Online journalist The Scottish Sun

The cost of going to University after my A-levels really put me off as I didn't fancy studying hard just to get into debt. Instead I enrolled for the fast-track course at JW and learnt everything I needed to know in an intensive but high-calibre 14-week course. Journalist Works then sorted me out with a work experience stint at The Argus. The News Editor told me he liked my work and offered me a job. I remember he joked "they taught you well upstairs" and I gladly accepted the job. Studying at Journalist Works not only saved me a thousands of pounds in tuition fees, but also a hard slog at University too.

Ben Leo, Reporter, The Argus

The course gave me all the skills I wanted, and several I never imagined I'd need -- until they were tested in my first job! The tutors' combination of industry insight and enthusiasm helped me move seamlessly into the editorial and news writing career I wanted.
