Mica Rowe – MA Television
Mica Rowe is a student on the MA Television course at London College of Communication. Here, we find out about why she chose her course, her future ambitions in the TV industry and how she'd describe her time at LCC.
Where are you from in the world?
I’m from London, England.
Why did you choose to study MA Television and why LCC?
I chose MA Television because I felt what it offered, specifically the practical experience and great facilities at LCC such as the TV studio, was exactly what I wanted and would benefit me greatly when looking to develop my career after university.
The course also offered teachings on budgets and the financial side of the business, which is so important and an area which is often overlooked. Also, when I met Course Leader David Hoyle at an open day before applying, it was clear the direction he had for the course really matched with my own desires.
What was your first impression of LCC when you joined?
When I joined, the first thing I noticed was the open atmosphere here – every aspect of LCC seems open to the students’ creativity, with areas throughout the College displaying student work. To me, that really highlighted the College’s willingness to support students’ work, and it also really encouraged me from the start and made me feel comfortable to express myself.
And what’s your favourite thing about LCC now?
I like the fact that there’s always an exhibition going on. Throughout the halls and gallery spaces there is always displays of student work, which I think this is great. It allows students from a range of courses to view work from people from different areas and specialisms, and I think this really promotes open discussion and new ways of thinking.
What three words would you use to best describe LCC?
Exciting, diverse and creative.
What are you hoping to achieve after you graduate?
I want to put into practice all the skills I have gained from being on this course and get a job in the industry, specifically on studio-based programming.
