"Jschool is an intensive hands-on experience in action. We get out there and visit parliament, council meetings, law courts and newspapers, and that level of involvement has helped my progress immeasureably."
"It is such a challenge and a real hands-on course. The journalists I worked with during my work experience at a major Queensland daily were very surprised with the knowledge I had and how quickly I picked things up. You are never bored, because of all the outings and excursions. I will definitely be going into my job next year with a lot of confidence."
"Jschool is jam-packed with activity every day saw something new thrown at us! We were never bored. I have met so many interesting people during this course and the teaching is incredible. I didn't believe there were teachers/lecturers out there who cared about how well their students performed, but Jschool proved me wrong."
"I had worked for four years before deciding to change careers and become a journalist; Jschool was the perfect way to do this. There are no exams or essays to write instead we write article after article until it becomes second nature. The small class size is a blessing and a curse you get more access to the professor than you would in any other institution but he also knows when you are slacking off! It's a rounded journalism education we have visited (and then, of course, written articles about) state parliament, the courts and the council. We also learn shorthand and, best of all, have the opportunity to do several internships during the year. The internships are the real test, and the skills we learnt in the course meant I was able to write articles that were printed in the newspapers from the very first day I arrived."
"After returning to study after five years in the workforce I was glad to find Jschool's curriculum so broad and inclusive. The course offered practical lectures in a relaxed environment, informative excursions and job-specific assignments to develop the journalistic skills I enrolled to learn about. The fact it also touched on a wide-ranging number of interesting subjects with no direct relation to journalism made it all the more appealing."
"Jschool has helped me find my true career path of becoming a journalist. The course is very hands-on and exciting. It is very intensive and practical you learn the correct way to be a journalist. You 'hit the ground running' with site visits, court and council reporting, press conferences, interviewing and internships with various news publications. I fully recommend the course to anyone committed to becoming a journalist."
"Jschool offers something unique the opportunity to gain real experience in the news media industry. I'm happy to recommend this intensive course to anyone passionate about journalism. The knowledge I'll be taking with me on graduation will be invaluable."
"Jschool has provided me with the practical skills needed for a career in journalism, as well as the opportunity to apply these skills in a real newsroom environment. Since beginning the Jschool course I have worked in the newsrooms of four different newspapers and have had many articles published, including major feature stories. I recommend the course to anyone serious about makinga career in newspaper journalism."
