Welcome to the Diploma in Journalism, the NCTJ's entry-level qualification. As well as being delivered on accredited courses at universities, colleges and training centres, and via apprenticeships, the diploma is also available to study through distance learning. If you have already purchased modules from the main NCTJ website (www.nctj.com), this is where you will find your learning materials. Provided you have received your login details, you will find the relevant modules unlocked below. 

As you make your way through the learning materials you can mark your progress by checking off these icons -  - on the left-hand side of the course. This will then be reflected in the progress tracker at the top of the module. It is not a requirement to keep track of the sections you've been through, but you might find it helpful to do so.

Exams for distance learners are held three times a year for mandatory modules, and twice a year for elective modules. Exam dates for the coming academic year can be found here.
