Siobhan Smith - BSc (Hons) Broadcast Media Technologies

I chose to study Broadcast Media Technologies because media and particularly TV interested me massively. I saw that media has the power to influence, inspire, and inform people, and through the course I wanted to go on to work in the industry and have an impact on the viewers of the content I worked on.

Studying Broadcast Media Technologies

“I chose to study Broadcast Media Technologies because media and particularly TV interested me massively. I saw that media has the power to influence, inspire, and inform people, and through the course I wanted to go on to work in the industry and have an impact on the viewers of the content I worked on.

“I have really enjoyed the practical nature of the course, and getting hands on knowledge of working in the industry. In first year I particularly enjoyed the studio broadcast module, working in groups to put on our own live show as part of an assessment.

“Attending university was important to me because no-one in my family had been before. Choosing to go to university was a difficult choice and one that I didn’t think would happen because of financial reasons. You hear about the amount of money it costs for both yourself and your family, but I didn’t want to let that stop me from pursuing my dreams.

“I feel privileged that I was chosen to receive this scholarship in memory of Paul Wilmott. The scholarship will help me in attending university and achieving my best in my degree, helping with university travel costs, and will also help me in purchasing photography and video equipment. This will be important in helping me to produce content at university and afterwards, helping me to produce a portfolio and to be successful in finding work after I graduate.”
