Georgie McCafferty (MJ 2014) is a recent graduate of the JMSC Master of Journalism programme, a mother of three, and a freelance journalist. In this video, she talks about juggling family and studies during her Master of Journalism programme, and how the courses helped prepare her for a career in journalism.

Georgia studied part time, and in the two years she was at the JMSC, the one thing that struck her the most was the vast number of students who join the programme from all over the world.

“I’ve met people from Afghanistan, from Mongolia, from Sweden, from America, from the UK, from Australia like myself,” she said.

“I think the breadth of nationalities bring such a depth to classroom discussions and you learn a lot more from people who have lived all over the world and covered stories all over the world.”
