If you choose our journalism summer course, you will be taught to sharpen your writing and research skills and debate political, social and ethical issues.
You will investigate current affairs, practice the core journalism skills of interviewing and research and learn to write inspiring and accurate articles on your own choice of topic.
You will return home with a stronger foundation of journalistic skills and values, and will be equipped with the techniques for writing and editing copy.
These skills have wide-ranging applications and will stand you in good stead during your education and beyond.
The journalism program combines inspirational seminars and practical workshops with group and individual exercises:
• Use the power of language to communicate effectively and inspire others
• Enhance your essay writing skills and learn to structure an argument
• Learn the techniques for editing copy and designing pages for publication
• Undertake practical assignments - compile a news report, research and write a feature article, write a review
As a team, the students on this course will assist in the production of the ISSOS Times, the summer school’s newspaper. In addition, there will be the opportunity to visit one of England’s premier newspaper offices where our summer students will be able to talk to professional journalists and see how a newspaper is produced.
"Our son has attended ISSOS for two summers. We couldn’t have chosen a better school! Our son returned home much more mature and self-confident and we could not believe how much he had improved his English skills.
ISSOS has excellent academic standards as well as highly qualified teaching staff; we met them at the parents reception and were very impressed."
