Helping journalism and communications students get the best start they can.

Become a Partner

Legitimate offers student journalists a valuable resource. Over the course of their careers, they’ll write thousands of articles for dozens of publications. To locate these articles, check links are working, and add them to their own portfolio manually would take a lot of time and effort.

Legitimate is a free online content hub where profiles are automatically compiled and regularly updated, providing one-stop access to all of their work that can be easily shared with potential employers. It also helps student journalists to increase their following by sharing their articles with all of our users.

You can also create content directly in Legitimate and we will be introducing an option to paywall this content in the next few months. This could be an extra source of income for student journalists, and publishing work on Legitimate could also help earn NCTJ accreditation for those who are working towards this.

A Legitimate profile offers students a whole range of benefits and advantages.
