UTS Central News provides journalism students with hands-on experience in a dynamic digital newsroom working on a multi-platform website under the guidance of a professional editor.
Our aim is to give students the confidence and skills to be job-ready and create great digital stories to add to their portfolios.
At Central News, you will be pitching and breaking stories, promoting your byline and building your portfolio - with a professional editor to support and encourage you. The ability to use text, photos, and video all in one package and publish online immediately is the most in-demand discipline in the jobs market.
Central News gave me the experience I needed to secure full-time employment at The Australian newspaper. The mentoring, guidance and simulated newsroom environment at Central News made all the difference in being able to develop my skills, build a portfolio and ultimately secure a sought-after position as a full-time news producer.
