BUProud case studies

Owen Matthews

Owen’s story

"I learned to be curious, and to have the confidence to question everything. I learned production techniques, scriptwriting, directing skills, editing, legal frameworks, budgeting and the history of the industry I was venturing into, it was really helpful.”

BU Proud Joe Thwaites

Joe's story

"The lecturers helped me develop these skills whilst also offering invaluable advice and guidance in preparing me for getting a job after the course.” 

Lucy Owen

Lucy’s story

“Evident from watching my peers succeed within the sports and wider event industry, I believe it is one of few degrees that encourages students to continue their career in the same direction - into the world of Sports Management, Events and Tourism.”

Natalie Pirks

Natalie's story

“It's such an incredibly competitive environment that doing a course like BU’s Multimedia Journalism degree can give you the edge with employers.”
