The course has really encouraged me to experiment, make mistakes and learn from them.

Final year Journalism student Harrison Kirby talks about his studies.

How have you found studying Journalism?

Studying journalism has been my dream for as long as I can remember but studying here has been better than I ever could have imagined. It’s helped me narrow my interest, focus in on what I really love and learn to express my interests in ways that I never thought were possible!

Are there any projects that have stood out for you/is there something you’re most proud of?

I will always be especially proud of the podcast that I made with my friends, about the Troubles in Northern Ireland and how punk inspired a movement! This was probably one of the first times that I genuinely felt like a journalist and every second of this was just so rewarding.

What have you found the most useful part of your studies?

The freedom has probably been my favourite part of my studies, as it’s helped me to learn and find answers in different, unique ways. The course has really encouraged me to experiment, make mistakes and learn from them.

What are your plans after graduation?

It would be great to jump straight into a job but in this climate it’s difficult so I will probably look at options for a Master’s degree.
