Financial Times extends free access to journalism students
Financial Times, in partnership with Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, a member of MUFG, is extending its free access to FT.com for all 16-19 years old school students globally. The project is designed to help the students get supplement classroom study and better prepare them for university and work. In addition to being able to read award-winning journalism on FT.com, students will receive a weekly curated e-mail with content that is relevant to their school curriculum. The newspaper is planning to emulate the success of the UK schools initiative which has resulted in over 1,400 secondary schools and colleges and over 13,000 students gaining free access to FT content.
