Jschool is Brisbane-based, but the course is now taught online throughout Australia.
The entire course is delivered online, giving students the freedom and flexibility to download lessons and complete assignments in their own time.
Additional face-to-face meetings and small group classes are arranged in major cities.
The course also features online seminars and workshops where students can meet and chat.
Wherever students are located, they are encouraged to gather news stories from local news sources, including courts, councils and parliaments.
Optional internships give students the chance to gain hands-on experience in newsrooms.
