Brunel Media student reaps benefits from lecturer's support

Communication and Media Studies BSc

From UK

While at Brunel I have had the opportunity to develop a range of practical media skills whilst also gaining experience within the creative industry. I can also honestly say that I have benefitted massively from the support and advice of my lecturers who have prepared me for professional work placements in the industry. Through these contacts, I was able to grasp the opportunity of working at Disney for a year on a paid creative internship before luckily progressing into a position as an Associate Producer within the same team over the summer.

As part of my role at Disney in London I was involved heavily in post production, working within a creative team responsible for creating promotional adverts and content for Disney Channel across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The experience has given me a great insight into working in the media industry, and confirmed to me that this is the path I would like to follow after graduation. I now know that I can tackle the creative industry once I have finished uni, safe in the knowledge that I know what is expected of me and that I have several professional credits to my name – largely thanks to the time that I have spent at Brunel.
