With the course, you will:
  • Be inspired. Find your muse in The Writers' Room, our unique space for dreaming and writing. Through our master classes, network with seasoned media professionals from Singapore and around the world. 

  • Leave the classroom. Record your news, reality show or infotainment. Travel overseas to film a documentary as an assignment. Intern with reputable media networks or related companies.

The inclusion of a total journalism component in the diploma is critical, considering the current squeeze on talent in our newsrooms. I feel the diploma programme is therefore timely and relevant."
