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 £200 per year, per institution, running from September to August. 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 the Journalism Education journal.

We’re a friendly and supportive organisation which aims to represent and assist any journalism educator regardless of experience, and if you’re interested in joining or finding our more, please email us at assjrned@gmail.com
