One World Media Student Programme
Welcome to the home page for the One World Media Student Programme, a body of work which aims to support and encourage tomorrow's journalists and documentary filmmakers to produce outstanding media coverage of the developing world. We work with various partners and funders to engage future media professionals with global issues and the wider world.
Since 2009 the programme has worked with lecturers and students on accredited and respected media and journalism courses across the UK - click here to look at our partner institutions.
The programme features the following activities:
One World Media runs a series of workshops for students, covering a range of issues relating to reporting and filmmaking in a developing country and engaging UK audiences with stories from the wider world. Click here to find out more about the workshops.
The project features a series of large-scale events taking place at partner universities. The events will bring existing professionals into contact with students to share their knowledge through masterclasses, screenings, discussions, live pitching events, and more. Click here to find out about our largest event so far, the One World Media Student Festival 2012 in partnership with BBC North and University of Salford.
Students on participating courses can apply for modest funding to help them cover stories in the developing world as part of their course. Click here for more.
Supporting teaching and curriculum development
We work with lecturers to develop effective ways of teaching students how to cover the developing world. We provide input for new and existing curricula, and have also produced a set of Teaching Resources, designed to help university tutors cover these topics on their courses. The resources were made using input from 15 experienced journalists and filmmakers. Students can also access the resources directly. Click here to find out more.
From 2009-12, the Student Programme was funded by UKaid from the Department for International Development.
