Thursday 11-06-2015 - 15:00
Now in its eighth year, this year’s annual Student Media Summit will be hosted on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 August at the Human Rights Action Centre, the headquarters of Amnesty International UK.
The Student Media Summit has become the premier gathering for students aspiring to careers in the media and is designed to help attendees to build and improve their skills, prepare for their next step into journalism, and offer some excellent networking opportunities with professionals from across the industry.
It has a focus on reporting big issues that matter most to NUS and Amnesty, such as human rights abuses and struggles for political freedom, access to education and the vital role education plays within a society.
With the chance to meet high level professionals involved in every journalistic discipline including comment, investigative, entertainment, overseas and politics, the Student Media Summit is an opportunity not to be missed.
Previous professional speakers have included Evan Davis, Emily Maitlis and Owen Jones to name a few and this year's agenda will be announced very soon. We will also be holding sessions on television and radio, sub-editing and design, sourcing ethical advertising revenue, and managing a student newsroom.
What’s more, the Student Media Summit will provide student journalists with a unique opportunity to get some fresh and exclusive content for their outlet, the only thing they’ll need to remember to bring is a pen and their recording equipment!
Attendance is free (with a £5 registration charge to cover admin costs), but you will need to register onlineto be able to attend. Spaces are limited, so book your place today to avoid disappointment!
