london calling

straight from the heart
my only recollection of london is the heathrow airport- August 14, 1991. i ran into the defeated West Indian team flying out. a fellow indian student from delhi wanted the autograph of a few players. so i boldly went and was throughly rebuked (by none other than big bird joel). i never got an opportunity to set step on English soil (airport somehow felt above ground).
the other day susnato (2nd jp) asked me about higher education in uk. i believe someone like shashank (studying in westminister) would be the right person to get the info from. so over to shashank for inputs about media related studies in uk. soon you may have to put up a third blog to answer questions from jp students related to education there.

i dont really know why i'm sayin this but just felt like sayin it...do higher studies in journalism really help???
coz considering the fact that till date how many ever journalists i've met heve done just a bachelors degree in journalism from some indian university only...and are in good positions in their media organisation. also i heard that some ppl who are in very good positions in the electronic media also haven done much of higher studies so what is the use of higher studies?
the only advantage i see is the job security right? anythin else at all???

sheetal, thats a good question. i personally also believe that a masters is only necessary if one is not ready or confident with a bachelors.

Let me assure you sheetal you wont have any problems if you are motivated enough and Journalism isn't something which can be taught...
BUt a masters is merely a personal requirement...
and yes in todays world it does brand you but only for the first week after that... what you do is what you are...
