A year ago, HuffPost spent a week in Birmingham. They relocated their newsroom to invite people from across the region to tell them what they really cared about and what their story was.

At Birmingham School of Media, we care about those stories, those triggers, those concerns and those ambitions. With this shared vision, it is an exciting time to launch the HuffPost Centre for Journalism at the Birmingham School of Media. A place that brings together new voices that can define future narratives.
The HuffPost Centre for Journalism will bring together all of our journalism provision in one place. Our students will be able to work alongside some of the great journalistic talent that exists at the HuffPost. It will open up placements, workshops, masterclasses and more. Ensuring that we, as BCU, are an institution for wider Birmingham, there will be open talks for communities to be part of the wider media debate.
The HuffPost Centre for Journalism is the first of its kind. It places our students on a global stage and allows us to work with HuffPost to do media differently. It will have huge opportunities for our students and allow the HuffPost to work closely with a new generation to understand how news is produced and consumed, telling stories across different platforms.
