Thanks to professionals who kindly volunteer their time from their busy work schedules to mentor a student from the University of Lincoln School of Film & Media. Commitment with a student-mentee is to have at least 6 contact times (either online or in person) across an academic year. If you’d like to be a mentor, details are here and register your interest any timeLSFM_MENTOR_Registration-Form.

Meet the Graduates 2016 | Clip: Question Time

Meet-the-Graduates-logo-1024x435Meet the Graduates is our annual alumni networking event between our current and former students.  It’s a superb opportunity to share experiences and make connections with the working world. MtG 2016 held its popular Question Time hosted by Daniel J Layton (Class of 2012). Our audience with alumni spoke about life post-university on anything our students wanted to know. New Media Lincs student crew Daisy Sadeh (Year 1), Bradley Nicholls, Filip Grzejszczyk and James Hunter (in Year 2) captured the Q & A session with LSFM’s Associate Lecturer Andrew West (Class of 2014) who produced this clip.

I don’t know why it took me so long to enquire about a work placement but I wish I’d done it sooner. I emailed on the Sunday and had a reply first thing Monday morning offering me a week long placement. So I spent the next how many ever weeks working hard as a kitchen assistant, saving every penny I earned.  What did I get up to? I spent my week as a runner. Making tea, coffee and toast, fetching the odd Starbucks and doing the odd lunch run round Soho. We’ve all heard the runner horror stories but I found it to be quite the opposite. I loved every minute of it.  

Azimuth’s clients are all lovely, busy people who found the time to talk to me. I was on more than one occasion greeted with “Oh, you’re new!” and the conversation started there. I was asked what I was doing, what I had been doing, what my interests were and where I wanted to be. The amount of advice I got from just 5 minutes with a client has been absolute gold and I can’t thank them enough for that.  Continue reading
