What is the AJE?

The AJE represents journalism educators at higher education institutions in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Founded in 1997, the AJE aims:

  • to uphold the highest standards in journalism education
  • to provide a common voice for those involved in it
  • to promote and support research into journalism education and journalism

The membership fees are £250 per year per institution. Individual memberships cost £50. Our members have not only discounted fees for events, including our annual conference and additional events, but can also submit their proposals for the AJEUK Bursary scheme, to finance research projects and impactful events on Journalism Education.

A full list of the AJE’s aims and rules can be viewed in our constitution.
