I chose Middlesex University because of its location, reputation and the course on offer. I heard about Middlesex while I was studying at Monoux College and University representatives also came in to talk to us.
I studied for a BA (Hons) in English Literature.
Well first of all I am passionate about reading, and I felt that the course would allow me to focus on my creativity. English Literature is also a well respected degree to have.
Interpreting novels and poetry written by well known authors. I also enjoyed reading both classic and modern fiction.
My fondest memory of Middlesex University has to be my graduation day.
Make sure you give it your all and get to know your lecturers. Also don't be afraid to ask as many questions as possible. Continue to ask them until you feel confident in what you are doing!
My course allowed me to develop my time management skills, which are essential in the corporate field. It also helped to make me more articulate when communicating with people.
I am very creative so I always knew that I would be involved in the media industry. The main pros are that I'm doing something that I enjoy and also get to see the latest films before they are released. At present, I can't see any cons - I am still waiting for these to materialise!
I used professional networking sites like LinkedIn. I would recommend to any student that they create a LinkedIn profile if they haven't already done so and also advise them to get in touch with recruitment agencies.
Definitely working for Warner Bros. It wasn't my first job after university but I feel that I am growing and making progress which is what I want to do.
I want to expand my remit, to constantly improve my skill set and progress through the ranks at Warner Bros.
I would advise current students to make sure they have an idea of what they want to do once they graduate and a plan in place to help them achieve this.
My recommendation to recent graduates would be don't just apply for any job but make sure you are interested in or passionate about what you are applying for. Also be humble."
I would say stop procrastinating and plan ahead. Make sure you give your all to what you want to achieve because it will work out in the end.
