Journalism Workshop

Monash Scholars in partnership with Monash Arts invites you to experience the most advanced Multi Media Lab in Australia and find out what it’s like to work at a real news network.

If you’ve got an interest in Journalism or ever dreamed of being on TV, this two-day workshop could be for you.   Learn the basic skills of news writing and reporting and record your own interview in our television studio. At the end of day 2, a prize will be given for the best written story and best TV presentation.

This is a unique opportunity for scholars only and you should get in quick so you don't miss out.
