"The MA Journalism course really focused on the importance of placements alongside your studies as a way to break into the industry. I started by doing 2 weeks of work experience at the Independent and once I'd graduated, the contacts I'd made allowed me to get a full time job. I worked there as Whitehall correspondent and I'm now UK Political Correspondent for POLITICO.
Without Goldsmiths I wouldn't be where I am today. I wouldn't be a journalist. Goldsmiths really instills confidence in its students. You know that you've been trained properly and you've had the right values instiled in you so you can go out there and do a good job your way."
