Our journalists are students in the undergraduate and postgraduate media programs at the University of New South Wales, Sydney (Bachelor of Media; Master of Journalism and Communications). They study journalism, film making, arts reviewing, public relations and advertising. Their reports offer fresh insights into currently topical events, while also delving into some issues which have escaped the attention of other media outlets.
They come to their journalism from a wide diversity of backgrounds, both cultural and geographic, and bring this diversity to bear as they report, analyse and sometimes comment.
