Postgraduate Communication Testimonials
Find out from our Alumni what it's like to study a Postgraduate degree in Communication at UTS.
I really enjoyed the practicality of the course, particularly data journalism and how that can be integrated into discovering interesting stories for investigation…also when I went to Jordan as part of the Foreign Correspondents Study Tour, I learnt a whole range of skills from the others there – filming on multiple pieces of equipment, producing talent and landing on your feet when things don’t go to plan.

Graduate, Master of Advanced Journalism
All my tutors have been excellent and they've been incredibly generous in sharing their industry experience. Perhaps the subject that most surprised me was Professional Editing – I hadn't planned on choosing it as an elective, but after hearing feedback about the tutor (Bernadette Foley) and the learning outcomes, I did it and can highly recommend it, whether you're interested in a career in editing or not.

Graduate, Creative Writing
Digital Information Management
I also chose this course because it provided a flexible, face-to-face learning environment with evening classes that allowed me to study part-time on campus while working full-time. The course introduced me to
critical thinking, new concepts and areas of work, which helped me
develop my career goals and open up new opportunities.

Media Practice and Industry
I studied Media Arts and Production at UTS and learned the foundations of my practice. I am relieved to see a revived focus on ethical and sustainable media practices, and believe that our screen industry will be in reliable hands if the new generation of storytellers are educated with this integrity as core to their study. Activism and entrepreneurship are often denied space in academia, and I am excited that this new masters will encourage graduates to contribute back to society in a meaningful way, to make the world better than how we inherited it.”
A great part of the Sports Media course is the opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s high-profile professionals. During my first semester we had the CEO’s of the NRL, Sydney Swans and Sydney Sixers all come into class for a Q&A, which was something I never thought I’d have the opportunity to be a part of.

It's important communicators understand the future challenges in the workplace so they can help their organisations and leaders navigate them.
I believe having a postgraduate degree gives communication professionals the edge in the industry. Having both the technical ability which you learn while working, combined with theory which you learn in a postgraduate degree, gives you a much broader perspective on best practice. It also provides you with the tools you need to build brands and engage employees.
