BA (Hons) Journalism - East Coast Media 2010
Last April/May I was about to finish the third year of my journalism degree at East Coast Media, full of stress (there is ALWAYS a printer breakdown when you least need it!), nervousness (about what will happen once you have finished the course) and excitement (about what will happen once you have finished the course!) This time last year I would have been flapping over getting my dissertation styled correctly, in the right order and bound, with plenty of time left to hand it in. Then there was the other assignments and writing those critical analysis'... and now I can't believe it has been over for a whole year!
This really is a nerve-wracking time for any graduate, particularly in the current economic climate, so my thoughts really do go out to those of you who are in this situation right now! I was lucky enough to have found a job in what I wanted to do (I'm a Features Writer at Walton's Publications) within a month of handing in my last piece of coursework, and I really do realise how lucky I am, even if it is just a small, local publishing house.

So good luck to any of you out there who are currently finishing assignments and taking exams - it will all be over soon enough and then you can really start to enjoy the summer!
