Graduate Success Stories

Emma Lister
Emma Lister wanted to get ahead of the field at university by grabbing as much work experience as she could. Her hard work paid off – just a few months after graduating Emma is already working in PR.

“I knew how important it was from the word go to graduate with experience as well as a degree,” says Emma. “I did a sandwich course, spending one year on placement in the press office at Opera North. It was a fantastic opportunity and I learnt so much.

“In my final year I also worked part-time at a media firm in Bradford allowing me to gain experience working in an agency environment. It helped with my study too – I was able to apply things I was learning on my course in the workplace.”

Emma now works on a range of regional and national accounts, gaining positive media coverage for her clients. Her employer, Tim Downs, has been impressed by the calibre of graduates we produce. Tim says: “In our experience PR graduates from this university have a wider knowledge than just the course content – they have great presentation skills, understand different media channels and are up-to-date with the latest industry trends.
