Journalism Students Show They Have The Write Stuff

University of Chester Journalism students are already making their mark in the news sphere after their articles were accepted for publication by respected regional newspapers.

Among those published in this academic year was Dan Noble, a second year Sports Journalism student.

He said: “Now that my article has been published in the Liverpool Echo and Wirral Globe it feels extremely satisfying to see my hard work paying off with such a big publication recognising my writing and wanting to use it.

“Everything that I’ve learned over the past year and a half at the University of Chester has played a role in helping me achieve this. From basic news writing to interview methods, the whole process has really helped me get to the level I’m at now.”

You can find Dan’s work here: John Barnes Opens School.

More recently, Shaleena Ashutosh, an MA Journalism student, undertook a placement at the Chester Standard where she wrote about how the Lady Diana, a boat popular with sight-seers in Chester, was lifted from the River Dee. She also published articles about a new chef scheme and a bid to get more older people bathing at Chester baths.

Shaleena said: “This is my first three news stories officially on paper and on a website. I was so happy to see the news stories up there. I’m so happy to be a part of the University of Chester and for the opportunity given to me!”
