Dr John Jewell is the Director of Undergraduate Studies for the Cardiff BA in Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.

John Jewell: "May I take this opportunity to welcome and congratulate all our new students! May I emphasise, too, that the personal development tutors you have been allocated are there to help you - in matters academic and pastoral (please see your undergraduate information manual for further details).

If, for whatever reason, you feel the need to contact me then I am available in academic support/office hours 2 - 4.30 on Tuesdays and 1 - 4 on Wednesday’s. Alternatively, I can always be contacted via e mail or telephone when a convenient meeting time outside of office hours can be arranged. Good luck and best wishes for a successful three years.
