FAO All students - Please backup ALL of your files before the summer break.

During the summer we are hoping to refurbish the CFJ newsrooms with beautiful, gleaming new Imac computers. Mmmm - Nice!

This means that the PC's that you all currently use will be gone by july.

I know that all of you backup your files to your own machines and external hard drives but remind you that it is essential that you have all of the work you have created stored on your own media before the end of June 2013 - it will not be available once the computers have been replaced.

Note about concessions

At this time of year, it's not uncommon for misconceptions to circulate about the concessions process. So it's  worth reminding students of where they can find information about  the system.

It is explained clearly in your student handbooks, and is also set out here on the main University web site.

For the avoidance of doubt: individual coursework marks will never be 'adjusted' by the marker on the grounds that a concession form has been submitted.

Shorthand: The Movie

Still hanging on to the forlorn hope that you can get by in journalism without passing your shorthand? Take a look at this new video put together by Sky for the National Council for the Training of Journalists, featuring some of the biggest names in the business.
