Emeline is a third year student on BA (Hons) Media Communications at London College of Communication.
Why did you choose to study this course and why London College of Communication?
I choose to study media communication for its wide variety of course subjects and learning approaches. The fact that I would have the opportunity to learn how to create practice based content as well as theory based one was a key point in my decision. London College of Communication offers a lot of different equipment, resources and facilities which is a strong point. The fact that LCC is located in the centre of London, with the great reputation definitely influenced my decision.
Have you had any opportunities to engage with industry whilst on the course?
During second year, a wide variety of guest speakers came to talk to us about their career pathway in the media industry. I also had the amazing opportunity to study Fashion Merchandising for a month at Parsons in New York City thanks to the Summer School Bursary scheme offered by LCC.
What important piece of advice would you give to students thinking of studying this course?
To be open minded and eager to learn more about the media and communication industry, not only what's in front of everyone's eyes but also the behind the scene of how it all works.
What has been the highlight of your LCC experience so far?
The people I have got to meet, from teachers to students - they're all interesting and always bringing something more exciting to my experience.
How do you find being a student in London? What would your dream day in London look like?
Being a student in London is never boring, there's always something to do. My dream day in London would be composed of getting a nice meal or coffee out with my friends, going to an exhibition in an art gallery, going shopping, and maybe even going to the gym.
What are your career aspirations? Where would you like to be in five years' time?
My career aspiration is to become a successful fashion editor. In five years' time I will have hopefully graduated from both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and would like to be working as a fashion editor either in London, Paris or New York.
If you had to describe your LCC experience in three words, what would they be?
Valuable, engaging, exciting.
