The London Media Trip took place Tuesday 22nd to Friday 25th of February 2011. This is a fantastic opportunity for the 3rd year Media and Creative students of Glamorgan University to visit some of London’s most influential and media related attributes, we have secure places at BBC, Radio 1, Teddington Studios and ‘The Wright Stuff’.
On the trip will be a learning curve for any media student, with talks from people in the industry and tours of these places, hopefully giving students on the trip a wider knowledge of the field, and valuable information that they can take away in order to put into practice with applying for Post-Graduate jobs in the coming year. It is also a chance for the students to network with industry professionals and with one another, which could result in useful contacts for future projects that may pass them in their studies.
The trip ran successfully last year, and was only open to Journalism students where they visited the BBC news rooms and unseen areas of the House of Commons, thanks to contacts with the university. This year I would like to expand the opportunity to all 3rd year and MA students who would be interested on the trip, giving us all a chance to explore London, and what it has to offer.
This is a great opportunity for any Media Student to take part in.
I’ll keep everyone posted and up to date on here, about the progress, but I updates will be avaliable on my website: http://www.sophielouisekish.co.uk
