Our media studies department took a group of students over to the Media Live! Conference at Disneyland Paris this month.
The conference is designed to showcase the many different career paths students who are interested in working in the media can take. Representatives from journalism, film, TV and new media firms attend and set to inspire students to see work from specialists in the field.
There are a variety of talks from three speakers who cover the fundamentals of the media studies curriculum which complements what our students learn in the classroom, covering topics such as media representation and media audiences, regulation in the media industry, understanding the media industry and all students are able to take part in the Media Live! Award which is a set brief allowing students to showcase their talent.
Our students got to enjoy some free time at Disneyland Paris and also spend some time exploring Paris, visiting UNESCO and an additional mobile technology exhibition.
Staff training - lessons end at 13.30 1:30pm on 28th March 2019
