JOUR1710 – Journalistic Investigation 94.9

Richard was an amazing lecturer, made all the content engaging. Had Scott as a tutor for this course, he was great. Both Richard and Scott went the extra mile to make this course great and deliver hands on journalism experience. The assessment is easy if you go to the lectures and tutes, with regards to the story and observation, it pays to think outside the box, try and come up with something no-one else is doing.

JOUR1710 – Journalistic Investigation 80.8

Favourite subject. Scott was an excellent lecturer and went the extra mile for students, always making himself available and really passionate about investigative journalism. The final assessment, although challenging, was fun and the award and prospect of submitting the story for publication is worth it.

The best course I did in my first year. Scott is one of the friendliest, most professional teachers I've ever had. He went the extra mile to deliver practical, useful, engaging material for the course. This course reinspired me to become an investigative journalist.
