Basic Journalism is a five-week course allowing students to deliver their first articles for Harbingers’ Magazine.
During the course, you will learn the principles of high-quality journalism while practising planning, researching, and writing on subjects of your choice under the guidance of practising award-winning journalists from the UK and around the world.
Our goal is to teach students not only what is necessary to commence their path to journalism but also to equip them with knowledge and understanding of the media industry, allowing them to become more conscious consumers of news and less susceptible to misinformation.
By the end of the course — if everything goes according to plan — you will have published at least two articles.
The course is open to students aged 14-17, regardless of their country of residence. To be able to take advantage of the course, you should have a good command of English and a computer with unrestricted access to high-speed broadband.
The course consists of ten one-hour-long sessions over the course of five weeks. All sessions take place on Google Meets.
If you are a refugee student or come from an underserved community, you may be eligible for the fee to be waived. For details, see our Scholarships page – our aim is that at least 25% of students receive our classes free of charge. Furthermore, the best students receive monthly financial scholarships.
