The BBC Academy style guide is for all BBC News output. This section of the BBC Academy website is the current style guide for all BBC News output. Although it is only a guide for journalists, it details many of the rules of spelling, punctuation, and grammar. It also covers accuracy, fairness, and impartiality. 

IMMJ-MA calls for high standards of English and well-written stories that we can easily understand, poor English will dramatically impact your marks, and if serious problems persist will lead to assignment failure.
