Real-world journalism collaboration
Falmouth journalism students were invited by the Rory Peck Trust (RPT) to gain real-world experience by profiling the finalists in the Trust’s annual awards. The Rory Peck Trust aids freelance journalists around the world and the Rory Peck Awards are some of the news industry’s most prestigious. BA and MA Journalism students interviewed and wrote in-depth profiles on each of this year’s inspiring finalists. Having the opportunity to experience journalism in practice is of huge benefit to students and being able to explore the talent and experience of the award nominees and those involved with RPT is invaluable.
