Online Journalism Courses
Our online journalism courses have been developed by experienced journalists, who have contributed their professional expertise, to help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.
Becoming a journalist is easier than getting work as a journalist and so many people begin their journalism career freelance. The advantages of starting as a freelance journalist is that whether editors buy your news articles or not, will often depend more on the content and readability of your work, than whether you have a journalism degree or other qualification.
Your talented skills, which enable you to produce concise, interesting and relevant pieces of journalistic work, are your most important marketable commodity. Unfortunately, many people get put off their dream of becoming a journalist, because they mistakenly believe they need a degree to get into the industry.
Our journalism courses are designed to help empower you to succeed, by adding the right journalistic writing skills to your determination, natural talent, perseverance, adaptability and the other attributes you will need to thrive in a highly competitive industry.
Here is a selection of the courses we have to offer:
- Biographical Writing
- Editing 1
- Efficient Writing
- Freelance Writing 1
- Journalism Practice 1
- Publishing 1
- Technical Writing
Learn online via distance learning: With mentor/tutor support throughout, our online professional journalism courses studied by distance learning, are applicable anywhere in the World. Whether you want to start off as a freelance journalist, or prepare for a journalism degree, we have a course to help you achieve your goals.
Get a journalism course qualification: ADL offers a variety of programs with the opportunity to gain an endorsed Certificate from TQUK, a UK Government approved awarding organisation, listed as "recognised" on the Ofqual Register.
Increase your chances of getting noticed. Employers like to see initiative and self-motivation in a potential employee, so completing an online course in your own time can only help you to stand out from other applicants who haven’t done so. So, begin your journey as a professional writer with ADL.
Continue your professional development (CPD): Learn how to enhance and improve journalism skills by learning something new to add to them. For example, you may like to add the ability to write biographically or move from journalism into editing. We bring different types of journalistic skills together with courses that gel with each other.
Learn about journalism: Investigate whether journalism is the career your really want to go into, by taking a short course with us. If you enjoy it, you can take further courses, or an extended course such as our Diploma in Journalism and have your first course counted towards your final qualification.
