All students sitting the NCTJ Essential Media Law exam in January please pick up from Nicola's office a copy of Sample Paper 3. This is for you to work through during the Christmas break. We will de-brief on it in the class on January 17th. But feel free to email me with answers to this - or either of the earlier papers - during the break and I will send you feed-back.
As a student, it can sometimes feel like life is flying by at 100mph. One minute you're sunning yourself on a secluded Italian beach and the next you're drowning in deadlines and getting heart palpitations from the copious amounts of caffiene in your bloodstream. Add a weekend job into the equation and the semester is almost over quicker than you can say: "Would you like fries with that?"
Since reaching the ripe old age of 22 it feels like time is escaping me. I barely have time to breathe let alone eat three regular meals, socialize, stick to my deadlines and make sure that I drink enough water (Echo Falls doesn't count, apparently). Call me crazy but I love the thrill(?!) of trying to find a healthy balance between university life, work and down time; I'm the type of person that likes to be kept busy. An extra shift is available, you say? Sure, sign me up. A fun run this weekend? See ya at the finish line.
Congratulations to Isabel Eidhamar for scooping Student Project of the Year at the NCTJ's Awards for Excellence last night.
It is the third year in a row that the award has gone to a Centre for Journalism student, with Isabel following Boglarka Kosztolanyi and Michael Haffenden.
After a fierce bidding war, the Willow Walk pub right next to Victoria Station has been announced as the venue for the CfJ social gatheing next Satudray.
Weatherspoons shares rose 15% on the news.
The address is: 25 Wilton Rd, Victoria, London SW1V 1LW. Basically take the exit near platform 1 and follow your nose. Hope to see a few old and new faces there. Let us know via our Facebook event if you're planning to come - or just turn up any time from 6.30.
