Centre for Broadcasting & Journalism

The Centre for Broadcasting & Journalism (CBJ) has outstanding specialist facilities to enable our journalism students to develop their skills in a professional real-life journalistic environment that is as close to industry-standard as possible.

The multi-million pound centre, in the heart of Nottingham, includes a dedicated newsroom, a broadcast standard TV studio and gallery, and three digital IP-based radio suites.

Industry standard

We’ve created a learning environment that’s as close as possible to the real world of industry. You’ll have access to a fully functioning TV studio, with production facilities and three radio studios all developed to industry standard.

Student technical resources

The CBJ Tech Store has a large stock of broadcast quality audio and video recording equipment and accessories, all free to loan, including:

  • Panasonic AC90 and AC130 HD digital camcorder kits
  • Canon and Panasonic DSLR cameras and lenses
  • GoPro and 360 cameras
  • Marantz digital audio recorders
  • Mobile journalism kits
  • Manfrotto tripods
  • Sony, Rode and Audio-Technica microphones
  • Sennheiser radio mics
  • LED lights
The tech team are incredible, they are such a friendly bunch and you learn so much by working closely with them every day. We had access to industry standard production and post-production equipment. Being able to use industry standard kit whilst studying really helped prepare me for life after university.
