Guardian's move into journalism training with Cardiff University delayed by at least a year

The Guardian’s move into journalism training has been pushed back by at least a year.

Last year the paper announced it was partnering with Cardiff University to offer a masters degree in journalism with digital media.

It was expected to launch in September of this year, but plans have now been delayed with the application deadline for postgraduate courses having ended in March.

Richard Sambrook, professor and director of Cardiff’s journalism school, told Press Gazette: “The Guardian and Cardiff originally intended to launch an MA in Journalism with Digital Media this year, however, as we worked through the proposal for what is a very innovative course we realised it was better to postpone for a year rather than compromise the plan to meet that deadline.

“We are still discussing what we will do with the Guardian and as soon as anything is firmed up we will announce it.”

A Guardian spokesperson said: “Talks with Cardiff about the development of journalism programmes are ongoing but there’s no further detail at this time.”
