NEWS REPORTER

Required Qualifications

One does not need a specific qualification to become a reporter although most will have at least a university degree related to journalism. Courses can be taken at a number of universities and institutions specialising in Journalism can be found nationwide.

Writing for a university publication and blogging are good ways to start building a portfolio early on and will demonstrate commitment and interest to prospective employers. Sending speculative applications for work experience and internships to as many prospective employers will also increase chances of entry into the industry.
