Future journalists programme




The Future Journalists Programme (FJP) aims to bridge the gap between what we learn at university and the working world of journalism. This initiative was started in 2007 as part of the Highway Africa Conference. The Highway Africa Conference is known for being a platform for African media practitioners to debate issues concerning journalism and new media, and the FJP gives students the opportunity to learn about and be more critical about topics surrounding the industry. The participants conduct interviews and write stories throughout the Conference. The points covered are not included in general curricula and are intended to be helpful for up-and-coming journalists as they provide them with knowledge and opportunities they can use when stepping into this profession.

Students from the 2013 Future Journalists Programme speak out about the experience.
