30 June deadline for applications for RTS bursaries

The Royal Television Society wants to help talented young people from lower income backgrounds to realise their potential and get a foothold in the television industry. They award 20 bursaries each year to students who have a place to study on our Journalism undergraduate course. To be eligible for a bursary, your household income must be less than £25,000 a year. The bursaries are to support living expenses and will be paid in instalments of £1,000 a year for the duration of the course.

Please come to the big UG newsroom on the first floor, G1-04 at 1pm today, Monday 5 March.


PS I am attaching the marking guide to sample exam 3, the mock, which has model answers, and another sample exam, number 1, with both a marking guide and model answers.
