No Comments

The university which also popularly referred to as UCLAN has come up with appealing scholarship Programmes for international PhD study programmes. Students coming from all over the world to study in UK for their PhD degrees might find this scholarship option quite an attractive one!

Here are the details about international PHD scholarship programme offered by UCLAN

International PhD

Scholarship Project Title

A critical evaluation of the current role and future potential of news storytelling within the context of continuously changing digital news formats and platforms University of Central Lancashire – School of Journalism, media and Communication.

Applications are invited for a full-time scholarship available in the School of Journalism Media and Communication. The scholarship is tenable for up to 3 years for a PhD (via MPhil route) [subject to satisfactory progress] and is open to international applicants only.

UK/EU applicants are not eligible to apply. The scholarship will provide £15000 towards the cost of the International tuition fee over 3 years.

Project Title

A critical evaluation of the current role and future potential of news storytelling within the context of continuously changing digital news formats and platforms

Project Description

News, like many other forms of communication, fundamentally is about storytelling. The ways in which stories have been told historically has varied in relation to changes in language use and sophistication, culture, technology, political and economic pressures, among other things.

Most crucially, the business of what is a good story and how audiences can be made interested in it is the result of a continuous process of dynamic interaction between all of these things, but technology is becoming increasingly important.

The radical acceleration of the development of digital technology that has occurred in the twenty-first century has introduced so many new different formats and platforms of news delivery that the technology has now outstripped the rate of news providers’ corresponding ability to rethink and reformulate their storytelling strategies.

This project will investigate in detail the nature of the interaction between this technological development drive and current news storytellers’ rates of adaption, together with the so far unrealized potential of various of the new platforms/ formats for facilitating new forms of creative news writing.

It will investigate the potential of new technologies for harmonizing story telling techniques with different sectors of the audience as they shift from one new platform/format to another.

It will explore also the potential of new formats/storytelling techniques for expanding the level of attention given to the detail rather than the headlines of the news. It will do this specifically with regard to platforms that contain inherent and limiting technical characteristics that encourage sampling and quick views rather than in-depth news viewing.

[NOTE: Applicants should have, or expect to receive a qualification
equivalent to a high class UK honors degree]
