More about Matt

"During my placement I worked as a journalism intern at Nottingham's local TV channel, Notts TV. I had the opportunity to work with the video journalists on a daily basis, producing stories for their website and arranging interviews.

"It was only a matter of days before I was engrossed in the Notts TV way of life. I loved being there! It was a hugely worthwhile placement and integral to helping me to decide on doing the third year pathway.

"I received a lot of support while on placement. The technicians were fantastic and the senior journalists helped me to develop news stories. It was great to work with a wonderful set of people who genuinely want to help you get better.

"The facilities at Notts TV were brilliant, and conveniently based in the same newsroom that I use on my course. The Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism is based at NTU's City site, which is really useful. Everything is easily accessible and it's right in the city centre, so I'm not too far from anywhere.

"Working at Notts TV as a journalist is something every journalism graduate would want on their CV. It's a unique scheme at NTU and one which I know will help me when I start my job search.

"My top tip for anyone about to undertake a work placement is to be confident and make yourself known in order to get the most out of the experience."
