“Through my lecturer I got work experience at BBC Radio Devon. Around two weeks later, I was offered the opportunity to work some paid shifts as a Broadcast Assistant and I’ve been involved in some amazing projects since! I can’t believe that I’m getting paid to do a job that I really, really love.”

“A student who had lost a lot of weight was prepared to share his story. We filmed and edited it and it was good enough to go on the BBC. Never in a million years did I think my work at University would feature on the BBC’s website. I think it got more than 100,000 views.”
“What has made the difference is being somewhere where people could get to know me and I could discover myself before entering the professional world. This is why I am getting better work now, I'm not only secure in my ability to act but also secure in who I am as a person, which shines through. ”
