‘I joined the JMSC with the hope of taking my work experience in video journalism to a new level, and to stay in Asia and work as a video producer.

Studying at the JMSC gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented journalists and producers in the business. Not only did the faculty give me every opportunity to develop my storytelling skills, but the tutors also encouraged me to further develop my ideas, giving me a more thorough perspective on my work.

During my time at the JMSC I had the chance to carry out assignments that eventually led to work opportunities with media outlets including Radio Television Hong Kong and the South China Morning Post. This gave me a real foot in the door into a working life as a freelancer. But more importantly, the experience has given me the confidence to work independently as a journalist, and to continue developing my skills even after graduating.’

'Studying at the JMSC was the best time of my life. I got a better understanding of democracy and justice, and became more determined to be a journalist. At the JMSC, I honed my filming and video editing skills, and learned how to discover and produce human-interest stories and documentaries. My internship at an Indonesian TV station made me more tenacious. It was like a crash course that taught me how to explore and produce video news stories when I was still very new to a foreign country.'

'I've always wanted to be a print journalist but it wasn't until I joined the MJ programme that I realised how many more opportunities I could have in this field, such as documentary production. I learned all my video production skills from the JMSC, and I've been fascinated by it since the first day I touched a JVC and learned how to use Premiere. I've made up my mind to become a multimedia journalist at the end of this programme, and I've always felt so grateful for having the opportunity to become friends with so many fantastic teachers as well as the alumni.'

'I wanted a hands-on learning experience and the MJ programme gave me that. We got to learn how to use video and photo equipment and lights, how to record an interview properly and edit videos using the same software used in the journalism industry. The professors and staff were very helpful in teaching me how to tell a story with images and videos, something I do every day at my job. The reporting skills learned in class allow me to get the details right when writing a story. Because the digital age gives easy access to tons of information, it's important to get everything right before publishing it.'

'I believe that all you need is a lucky break to make it into journalism. However, luck only presents itself when one's preparation meets opportunity. The JMSC programme prepared me through practical classes such as broadcast writing, online journalism and documentary video production. But what makes this programme stand out from other journalism schools are the extensive networking opportunities that helped me land my big break.'

'I joined the JMSC fresh out of my undergraduate studies looking for insight and practical experience in the world of journalism. The course, professors and alumni network offered an invaluable opportunity for me to gain exactly that. Beyond garnering a stronger news sense and learning new technical skills such as online journalism and video producing, the JMSC also offers students a real foot in the door into the world of journalism.'
