The London School of Journalism

A wide selection of established courses...

The London School of Journalism provides journalism courses, freelance classes and creative writing courses by Distance Learning, and as evening classes, short day-time courses and postgraduate diploma courses.

Our distance learning courses cover all aspects of journalism and creative writing, and our postgraduate courses cover news, features, freelance, media law, broadcast and internet journalism. We have a four week summer school every August, and a range of evening classes and daytime short courses which are held throughout the year.

Postgraduate courses can be taken as online courses or as attendance courses in London. Our distance learning students come from all over the world, and many use our email course delivery so that all their work and assignments are delivered in this way. Distance learning, utilising modern communications, allows student and teacher to work closely together, regardless of physical location.

The LSJ has been teaching journalism and creative writing for over 90 years - and unlike most 'schools' who offer distance learning courses, we are a real school, staffed by real journalists and writers who enjoy working with real students. We continue to lead the way in developing new and effective teaching methods. The result is demonstrated by the success of our students.

You can rely on our long experience of teaching to give you the best opportunity to succeed - our journalism distance learning courses are based on the same syllabus and same documentation as our internationally established postgraduate courses.

Although best-known for our journalism courses, half of our students are involved in other forms of writing - short stories, novels, children's fiction, poetry, cartooning and our English courses - which are an equally important part of our activity.
