Glasgow Caledonian Journalism Course Gains Re-accreditation

The BA (Hons) Journalism course at Glasgow Caledonian University is among 21 courses throughout the UK to have had their courses given a renewed seal of approval by the National Council for the Training of Journalists.

Some 14 'journalism centres' were re-accredited by the NCTJ, with one missing out. 

Says a NCTJ: “The re-accredited courses continue to show a commitment to providing the gold standard qualification and delivering high-quality journalism training to students who have the talent and dedication to succeed in their journalism careers. Each was re-accredited for two years.”
