Year 2s - don't forget we have our extra Court Reporting session tomorrow morning - Feb 21st. It's from 11 - 1230 in room G3-05. Remember to bring with you the test paper we started last week - AND your McNae.
Many congratulations to Year 3 undergraduate student Karina Pavlova, who has just been announced as the 2019 Sky News Bob Friend Scholar.
After a tough interview process, Karina emerged as the successful candidate just ahead of shortlisted students Jess Sharp, Sam Baker and Joe Dawson - all of whom gave superb accounts of themselves for the panel.
Looking for something exciting to do on Sunday 3rd of March? Men, women, everybody's welcome. I am planning to attend and cover it for a couple of Mexican outlets and if you're still looking for portfolio stories this could be a cool thing to go do! The March starts at 12pm and then it culminates in an hour long event in Central Hall Westminster that you need to buy a 5 pound ticket for. Covering protests, demonstrations and marches is an important part of journalist's work. We could do a little unofficial field trip and train up from Medway together. Interested? I'm not hard to find =)
