The American University in Bulgaria (AUBG) is offering English courses for journalists and journalism students. The classes are free. They will take place in Sofia, at Elieff Center, from October 26 2017 to April 2018. The application deadline is October 16 2017.

Funded by the Department of State in Washington DC, the programme was specifically designed for journalism students in their third or fourth year of studies “who want to improve their English abilities from intermediate to upper-intermediate and above”, as well as employed professionals.

AUBG said that it had “a long history and an established expertise both in English language instruction and Journalism and Mass Media studies.” Since its foundation 25 years ago, the institution had “upheld the highest academic standards and has educated students in democratic and ethical leadership.” AUBG wants to “make an even greater impact on society by reaching out and educating media professionals”.

The course consists of 15 weekday and weekend sessions. It will start with English language courses and move towards journalism after its fifth week.

Detailed information, including application requirements, may be accessed on the AUBG’s website.
