We also believe that they are at the heart of a good journalist; we’ll be assessing you against our values and we hope to see some of this potential in your interview.

Our values are:

Humanity- We are student-centred, making a difference to individuals and society. We create human connections and community.

Ambition- We achieve more by working together and sharing our achievements. We empower people to be the best they can be.

Curiosity- We push boundaries and enjoy searching for a better way. We encourage potential and possibility.

Independence- We nurture self-belief, independence and wellbeing. We encourage diverse views and independent thought. More information about our values can be found here.

Your interview

If you are successful in achieving an interview we will update your UCAS application with the interview date and we will then email further information to you.

Your interview will be held online via Microsoft Teams and will last for approximately 20 minutes. The Interview will be conducted with the programme leader or a course tutor on our Journalism course, and will be a conversation around your suitability for the programme, any previous experience or relevant work you have completed, what really interests you and your passion and enthusiasm for the subject.

No other preparation will be required beforehand, apart from your interest in Journalism here at Marjon.


After the interview

If you are successful in securing a place on one of our Journalism programmes, you will be notified via UCAS. You will also be invited to visit the Marjon campus at a later date.
