Our Editorial Skills Program helps you build the foundation you need to edit text for English language media. Get a practical introduction to the essential skills required in the key areas of editing, and study all stages of the process: structural and stylistic editing, copyediting, proofreading and production editing. A 45-hour editorial work placement gives you the opportunity to enhance your skills in a workplace setting.
Career options typically involve a wide range of industries, including both traditional publishing (newspapers, magazines, books, corporate newsletters, online publications) and less traditional fields.
