"The strong practical orientation convinced me in this program. I could learn the journalistic skills from scratch and deepen them a lot."
"I wasn't aware of distance learning and now I'm thrilled to be able to learn this way. It is completely flexible—I can study wherever and whenever I want. I'm now able to combine the course at the Open School of Journalism and my job as an online editor. I work through the course faster than originally planned and have even recommended this program to a co-worker."
"The course provides a good opportunity to improve my journalistic knowledge."
"I am in my last semester at university studying political science. At the same time, I'm completing the course at Open School of Journalism with the goal to work as a political journalist. This combination is great! The course fees are very fair compared to international standards. Keep it up!"
"Writing is my greatest passion. So I decided on the journalistic studies program at OSJ because I want to turn this enthusiasm into my professional focus."
"Due to the large selection of modules, I could immerse myself in areas that interest me the most. Especially in the areas of journalism skills of course, but I also chose several different modules, in order to be more professionally well rounded."
"I was very taken aback by the many genres of journalism. There are so many different ways to work as a journalist. At no other journalism school have I found a more systematic presentation of these varieties."
"I also like the international nature of Open School of Journalism. The lecturers—theoreticians as well as practitioners—come from the most famous journalism schools in the world, even Columbia Journalism School is represented here. OSJ has put together a team with qualifications and expertise you can't find anywhere else."
"Due to renowned professors, the study material is pedagogically at the highest level. It is very clear and precise. The webinars are also very informative. It's even fun, and you gain new knowledge through discussing with professors and other students."
"I especially like the practical workshops. I was a little sceptical at first about studying at a distance school. But the workshops are an ideal complement to the module books. It is a great opportunity to practice investigation and writing, and you get useful feedback from your tutors."
"At OSJ you feel very well taken care of—in both technical and organizational matters. The tutors are helpful & supportive and offer useful feedback. The Students Office is also very friendly and service-oriented. A great team with whom you can co-operate."
"The care provided by the Students Office was excellent and is always fast and competent processing all of my requests with positive and motivating feedback."
"I was extremely satisfied with the overall concept and the study to the fullest extent. Everything was great! The content, the support, the flexible timing. I would decide again to do this program!"
"I have achieved my goal and am now working as a freelancer for cultural topics for two newspapers and several online magazines. Thank you for this solid education!"
"Already during the training at the Open School of Journalism, I gained experience as an intern for a radio station, a newspaper and an online magazine. This was an ideal combination and I learned a lot that I can now put to good use."
