After securing a place on the BBC's Extend in News scheme whilst still completing his degree, Drew has gone on to work for BBC Radio 4's Money Box, Panorama, and more recently BBC Ouch.

Working across TV, radio, online and podcasting, he has produced investigations into student loans and the housing crisis, as well as appearing on the BBC news channel and Radio 4 with his own original journalism.

Over the past year he has been covering disability issues with BBC Ouch and has produced big names including comedian Rosie Jones and Team GB Paralympian Hannah Cockroft.

In addition to his job role, Drew is also a member of the BBC’s Next Generation Committee, whose work informs the BBC Executive Committee and Director General by presenting reports into various areas of the organisation. This year his work earned a mention in the BBC’s annual report.

Drew says: “Working at the BBC is a dream that I only achieved thanks to my experience and training at BU. I use the skills I learnt on my degree every single day.”
