‘The JMSC gave me what I needed for a head start in the field of journalism—from writing to video and digital skills, all in just one year. Learning from top-notch educators and working journalists, the intensive programme has made entering the field much smoother. In addition, my colleagues and I had a wide range of options for internships, from local newsrooms like RTHK and Initium to international news organisations like CNN, where I did mine. During my time at the JMSC, I also got to meet many amazing people from different places around the world. Friendship and a shared passion for the news are bonuses on top of an already excellent programme.’

'"Think global"—the best phrase to summarise my three-year experience on the Bachelor of Journalism programme at the JMSC. Immersed in an environment with international cohorts and faculty members, offered the opportunity to take part in world-class exchange programmes, connected to a wide-range of local and international internships, I learned the essence of journalism with a wide exposure to the globalised world.'

'I believe journalism, ultimately, is about human connections: how we all connect with each other as human beings playing different roles in a globalised society. I am grateful that the JMSC taught me how to find the human elements in everyday happenings and how to highlight emotions while covering social issues in an unbiased manner.'

'The JMSC allowed me to develop myself as a true all-round reporter. Video, photography, writing, social media: after completing the MJ I am confident in my abilities in all of them. This versatility is extremely appreciated and sought after in today’s media world. Learning journalism skills in Hong Kong also means real-life exposure to dealing with complex and sometimes politically sensitive subject matter—very useful if you want to work in any international capacity.'

'As someone who was working as a journalist in New Delhi before joining the Master’s programme at The Journalism and Media Studies Centre, I entered the programme with the idea of strengthening my reporting skills and expanding my network in the region. I ended up leaving with much more. With experienced working journalists as faculty members and JMSC alumni in every major news organisation in Hong Kong, the programme helped me gain inroads into the competitive world of financial journalism.'

'I joined the JMSC seeking to move into a career working with images. It wasn't the easiest path to take but I was confident that with my experience and with the JMSC laying out the foundations I would be in a good position. Following graduation from the programme, I joined the photo team at The International New York Times as an intern. Newsrooms are looking for specialists, but they also want someone who is well versed in a lot of things.'
