The changing face of the media

Why I chose PR at Leeds Met

I’ve been very busy with uni work these last few weeks so apologise for the lack of posting!

I was lucky enough to be featured on the Leeds Met PR blog along with a few of my other fellow students. It’s a nice little read about why the students this year chose the course and why they are interested in PR, please take a look!

Hello Leeds

Even after two weeks living in the city of Leeds, the move doesn’t quite seem real. I saught and received a great deal of advice before coming here yet nothing quite prepared me for the real thing. The uni experience is definitely an opportunity that I’m very glad I didn’t pass up.

In my short time at Leeds Met I can already tell I’m going to love it. Not only is the course interesting, but the course leaders immediately come across as supportive and passionate about their subject – something that struck me from meeting them on the open day. After the first seminar this week I felt put at ease and any initial nerves were gratefully dismissed! I am extremely looking forward to spending the next three years here. It certainly isn’t going to be easy but I can not think of a better place to study – Leeds is fantastic.
