Evelyn Keryova a student at Middlesex University explores the emphasis on practical learning over theoretical within journalism in higher education.

According to the education league table, the UK has the second best education system among European countries and sixth in the global table. In fact, many Europeans come here to study at a higher level and many are seeing the importance in practical learning in their courses.

To come here from overseas and study courses requiring at least intermediate level of English language is not easy. However, we are now able to see more students from Europe studying journalism than ever before.

"Universities are providing international students with a great experience full of practical learning."

Universities are providing international students with a great experience full of practical learning. City University London for example, has a Master´s degree in International Journalism who promote non-British applicants to study at higher level.
