July NUI Galway Student Selected to Represent Ireland for Future News Summit
NUI Galway Student Selected to Represent Ireland for Future News Summit
Tuesday, 16 July 2019
Róisín McManus, third year BA with Journalism student at NUI Galway.
NUI Galway student, Róisín McManus, is representing Ireland at the major international Future News Worldwide Summit for young journalism students in London this week. This is the second year that an NUI Galway Journalism student has been chosen for the summit.
Third year BA with Journalism student, Róisín is one of two students selected from Ireland to be a delegate at the highly prestigious summit, hosted by Thomson Reuters in Canary Wharf in London. She was chosen from more than 3,000 applicants to be one of just 100 delegates from 53 different countries globally at the event.
The Future News Worldwide summit is a three-day intensive media training programme where students engage in workshops, lectures and discussion groups with world-leading editors, broadcasters, writers and reporters, and see how publishers around the world are using technology. It is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world’s leading media organisations and technology companies including Google, Facebook and Reuters.
From Bawnboy in Cavan, Róisín said she was delighted to be chosen to attend the event: “I am so grateful to have been chosen for FNW19 in London. I’m excited to hear all the speakers talks over the next couple of days, to meet people from over 50 countries worldwide, and I’m proud to be representing Ireland doing so.”
Tom Felle, Head of Journalism and Communication at NUI Galway, said: “This is a tremendous honour for Róisín and NUI Galway is very proud that one of our students has been chosen to be a delegate. Future News Worldwide brings together the cream of the crop in terms of journalists of the future. They get to meet with and share ideas, listen to industry leaders talk about the importance of journalism in democracy worldwide, and are introduced to digital skills training.
Following the conference Róisín will be part of a year-round global alumni network, helping her and other delegates to engage with one another, implement their learning and continue their professional development.”
Young journalism students from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, across the US, Europe and South America are attending the event.
NUI Galway offers programmes in journalism at undergraduate and postgraduate level. A new BA Journalism launches in 2019 as well as a new MA Sports Journalism and Communication programme.
