Why I chose to study a Masters at Leeds Beckett University
For the kind of work I want to do, having PR experience is a must. A Masters degree would boost my chances of getting the job I want.
After my Bachelors degree, it was only natural to stay at Leeds Beckett to do my Masters. One of the best things about my course was that all the lecturers have worked in the industry. They were able to give us first-hand knowledge of PR and journalism. I also gained first-hand experience during my course.
I was able to interview and take pictures of celebrities at the Mobo Awards. We also had live news days in which we worked as a team to write up stories from reporters and produce them for a live TV news broadcast.
Living in Leeds
I love that Leeds is such a student-friendly city with people from many different countries. You always get to meet interesting people! There are many arts events in the city centre. These include Light Night, the Christmas Market and the International Film Festival. Leeds is also very affordable. It's cheaper to live here than many other UK cities.
I have gained practical experience that I can put on my CV. This will help me find jobs, not just in Indonesia, but in other countries as well. I got involved with so many things on both my Bachelors and Masters course. Practical experience and group work are essential for a future career in journalism or PR.
