Evidence of further training

For my second year of university, we all have to focus on the professional field we’re interested in and try to find out about it as much as we can.  Doing that will help us decide if the field is suitable for us and whether we need to experiment and find something else instead. Having […]

Placement applications/employer exchanges

One of my modules at university (201MAPA) requires us to find ourselves a placement within the professional field we are interested in. The concept of a placement is really interesting for me and it’s a totally new field as I have never been an intern. Therefore, I had to do a lot of research to […]

Guest speakers

I’ve listened to a few guest speakers that came to my university and I’ll reflect on three people who I found inspirational and relatable. *** I listened to Lauren Bromley who now works in the creative industry and is a social media manager in Birmingham. In my eyes, she seemed really genuine, down to earth and […]

A100DVA reflection

Reflection on  A100DVA – Visual Presentation Techniques Visual Presentation techniques was my Add+vantage module that I had to choose from a huge list at the beginning of the year.

As for students, research takes a huge part in the making of assignments and just studying in general so I’ll definitely use the […]

105MC reflection

Reflection on 105MC – Key Concepts in Media and Communication This module was, I would say, really complicated and confusing. One of the reasons was that it took me a while to figure out what the module is actually about. What I really liked about were the seminars because the lecturer was constantly engaged with […]

181MC reflection

Reflection on 181MC – Contemporary Theories: Media and Cultural Issues in Context This particular module was interesting because even though I was familiar with the topics chosen for the lectures, lecturers analyzed them in a new way in more depth and with a different perspective. I would call the module quite challenging as well because […]

180MC reflection

Reflection on 180MC Living in the Digital World – Putting Theory into Practice This particular module was very interesting. I enjoyed how the lecturer made everyone feel important by letting to express themselves, share ideas for the final project, discuss others’ work and so on. In addition, the assessment was one of the most interesting […]
