Ba Hons Advertising, Public Relations and Media 2:1

Middlesex University

Over my 4 years of university (one of which was a gap year that I used to carry out internships and freelance work) I studied many modules that gave me an understanding and appreciation for the sociological debates surrounding the commercial industry. I not only gained technical abilities, such as graphic design, copy writing, campaign planning and more, but I also developed an academic understanding of how these industries were formed and what the future of the commercial industry looks like.
