About The Ultimate Travel Journalism Course

The Ultimate Travel Journalism Course, provided by the British College of Journalism is your first step to becoming a successful travel writer. With over 30 years of professional experience behind our educators, you know you’re in safe hands.

The Ultimate Travel Journalism Course is conducted entirely online by distance learning, over your choice of 12 or 24 weeks. We offer full flexibility with deadlines, and you may take as long as a year to complete your course work.

This course will teach you:

  1. How to develop story ideas that are practical for your future, current or previous travels.
  2. How to develop these ideas into saleable pieces of work and to find out who will be interested in them.
  3. How to market your finished material to ensure your best chance of publication.
  4. The fundamentals of good writing (which remain consistent whatever your chosen genre).

You will learn this and more from industry professionals, who do this everyday.

Find career freedom as a travel writer

The British College of Journalism has designed this course to ensure that you gain professional writing skills and develop the specific knowledge required to be a successful travel writer and journalist.

Consider for a moment the immense satisfaction of being published. Imagine the sheer fun and excitement of seeing your first payment from writing about your travels. Better yet, picture being sent to an exotic location all expenses paid, for a travel writing assignment.

This course will help you create opportunities to earn income from anywhere in the world. You can work while sitting at your kitchen table or even as you embark on your once in a life time trip. Best of all, it provides you with the opportunity to generate this income from doing something you love; travelling!

Freelance journalism offers one of the few remaining opportunities for individual freedom, self-expression and financial gain. Specialising in travel also provides you with the opportunity to see the world as part of your job. At the same time it offers you the freedom to be more expressive and creative when sharing your experiences of people and places around the world, or, even your own doorstep.
