    I decided to enrol on the Diploma in Journalism as I was pondering furthering my writing career into the journalism field and hopefully onto TV Broadcast Journalism and wanted to ensure this was going to be right for me. After two units I was hooked and I am now studying a BA (Hons) in English Literature with a multitude of smaller courses to help me break into the broadcasting field. I particularly enjoyed hearing about the tutors personal experiences and will most certainly take those examples with me for the rest of my career!
