    journalism at macleay

    Hi, I do journalism at Macleay. Its not hard academically, but it involves a lot of practical work. You have small assessments for every subject, and a major assessment for feature writing, tv, and radio which are due at the end of the year.
    BTW, what school did you go to? I live in the St George, Sutherland shire as well.

    My brothers friend did Journalism there for half a year, but had to drop out due to family reasons. He loved it, he said alot of the students want to be in TV journalism, but he was doing print journalism. He even got work experience with the Chaser newspaper

    Pr

    Hey Simpz. No I don't know anyone doing the PR course but we have one term of PR as part of our journalism course. I personally like it, our major assessment is a media campaign for a group or event, but then what we're doing is only a small part of the whole course. One of the girls doing journalism this year wants to do PR next year.

    I reallly hated PR... eww. But then on my transcript I got distinction for it, oh the irony!

    Anyway yes I did journalism last year... it's lots of fun... but at the time when you're doing it you probably won't think it's that fun.

    But looking back on it... ahhh fun times *wipes tear*

    I think it is overpriced, but I had a great time and I think I got a good education from it.

    Hey!!

    So do you also have to oo journalism as part of your course, the same way we had to do PR as part of our course?? Interesting!!

    Hmm I just looked on Macleays website at the PR course - you have to do News Reporting?? YUCK! I hated that and was really bad at it...argh! Yeah I know what you mean about writing the intro... *rolls eyes* At the end of last year I still only got half marks for my press conference because apparently my intro didn't tell the whole story.

    Your course looks kinda hard, eh!! Is it quite a lot of theory stuff???

    Re: Macleay College

    Hey. I'm thinking about attending MC next year.
    Does anyone know if you can attend any other Unis (other than SC Uni) with your grad. cert? I really want to go to UOW (I live close to it) or UTS (Best University Degree in NSW). I'm not interested in SC Uni to be honest... Hahaha.

    Re: Macleay College

    I am also thinking of studying journalism at Macleay next year. Sounds like a really good course, does anyone know if they allow you to do a cadetship or internship while there, I think i may have just lined one up at a magazine....
    Anyone else going to the open day on the 7th?

    Re: Macleay College

    If you study it part time, where it would take you 2 years instead of the 1, I don't think there'd be too much of a problem.

    Thumbs down Re: Macleay College

    ok i have been at macleay for 2 terms this year and i have NO IDEA what i was thinking leaving uni and coming to this dump!

    1. cant stant ross bowen, hes an asshole and gets under my skin. his bullshit comments about the shire are ridiculous and not in any way funny
    2. their attendence rules are fucked, especially when they screw it up themselves
    3. these teachers all have poles stuck sideways up their asses...cant stand how they talk down to people...with the exception of manny and gillian (WHO ARE AWESOME).

    i hate macleay and wish i never came...going back to uni next year cant wait!

    You obviously don't do Journalism... I'm not sure what you do, but it sounds terrible. Especially the lecturers. I do Journalism and the lecturers are awesome.

    Looks pretty interesting to me too. Can't seem to find much information about it.



    Qualifications for Enrolment
    1. Students currently sitting for the Higher School Certificate or those who have completed the HSC or its equivalent in recent years
    So I'm assuming no UAI is needed then? Seems like an easy way to credit yourself in the field of Sports Mangement through to UTS. Something I'm interested in.
