Final year students of the BA (Hons) Politics and Media worked on a ‘live’ assignment in the context of their New Political Communication unit (led by Dr. Anastasia Veneti) with the Media team of Amnesty International UK. On 9th May 2017, students presented a 12-month Media Plan to the Head of Amnesty’s Media, PR and Supporter Care team, Mr Niall Couper and Mr Laurie Hanna, AI Press and PR Manager.
The students who undertook this assignment are: Emily Diaz, Daniel Bradshaw, Benjamin Rawlings, Benjamin Thomas Piper, Alice Fews, Lauren Webb, Daniel Joseph Williams, Benjamin Tuff, Lydia May Keys, Jana Silver, and William Alexander Lindsay-Stewart.
This represents a very positive outcome for these students and for the BA (Hons) Politics and Media programme aligned with our steadfast conviction to develop their employability skills and boost their critical thinking.
