University College Falmouth Secures New Funding For Students

Award-winning postgraduate journalism courses have now been recognised by the owners of the Guardian Media Group plc (GMG), The Scott Trust Ltd. Students on the University College Falmouth MA in Multimedia Broadcast Journalism and MA in International Journalism – both of which operate from UCF’s industry-standard, multi-million- pound broadcast complex at the Tremough Campus in Penryn – can now apply for Broadcast Bursaries from the Trust to assist them throughout the course of their studies.

The Scott Trust offers five print bursaries, one web journalism bursary and two broadcast bursaries each year for aspiring journalists to study for a postgraduate qualification in newspaper, web or broadcast journalism.
The two broadcast bursaries are offered annually at either University College Falmouth for its MA in Multimedia Broadcast Journalism and MA in International Journalism or a number of other universities across the UK. Scott Trust Bursaries fund tuition fees and provide a subsistence allowance of £5,000. They also involve several weeks’ work experience within GMG, with a number of past beneficiaries having subsequently secured employment with the company.

“These Broadcast Journalism bursaries are usually only awarded to universities within the Guardian Media Group’s radio regions but an exception has been made for University College Falmouth because of the high calibre of training that we offer,” explained Director of the School of Media, Paul Inman. “The School of Media works hard to foster high profile collaborations with the media industry and it is a testament to our hardworking staff and students that UCF has been recognised by such a prestigious organisation as the Scott Trust.”
The primary aim of these awards is to assist students who face financial difficulty in attaining the qualifications needed to pursue a career in media. The Scott Trust is keen to reflect the society it serves and recognises that certain groups are under-represented within the industry. As a result, the Trust particularly encourages graduates from diverse social and/or ethnic backgrounds to apply.

 Online applications for 2010 entry will open on 1 February 2010 for one month. The selection criteria for interview includes applicants having graduated with a degree; permanent residency in the UK; evidence of basic paid or unpaid work experience in journalism or similar experience; a need of financial support in order to achieve career progress; a portfolio of work or evidence of journalism/writing; and the ability to demonstrate a commitment to a career in media.
