Student Profile(s)

Deena

Having studied English Literature and Communication Studies in India, Deena joined LJMU to take her Masters in International Journalism. On graduation she hopes to launch a career in magazine journalism.

“I always wanted to finish my studies before getting a job as I think postgraduate study better equips you for work and enables you to decide what you want to do later in life.

I come from a very cultural and music background and, as Liverpool is famous for its music and culture, I was automatically drawn here. I loved that fact that LJMU’s International Journalism was a very serious, research-based course and I was lucky enough to be offered a scholarship here.

Postgraduate study is very independent and hectic but our lecturers are always there to help. I prefer being busy and, as a journalist, I thrive on deadlines so it is perfect for me.

When I came here the weather was a big shock. I have lived in Oman and India so it was a really big change. The people here are lovely though and Liverpool is a quiet, organised city which is very student friendly and offers good value for money. There is always something to do and see here and the different experiences on offer make you grow as a person. I love this place and will definitely miss it when I leave.”

Kiran

Kiran Javaid graduated in Mass Communications and Media Studies from the University of Gujrat in Pakistan before coming to LJMU to study for a Masters in International Journalism.

“I was searching for universities offering commonwealth scholarships when I came across LJMU. After reading about Liverpool Screen School, its facilities and modern infrastructure, I decided it was the right choice for me.

Courses at LJMU have a practical aspect and offer a really good learning experience. Assignments are designed to take account of real world challenges. This keeps me on my toes and helps me to realise my potential and expand my limits. Whereas undergraduate study is all about learning certain things, postgraduate is all about research and inventing something new.

It is really easy to interact with tutors here. They are kind and really concerned about their students, always willing to solve any problems. And the support doesn’t end there, the University support teams are always on hand to give advice on everything from wellbeing and finance to career development.

LJMU is all about learning and fun. I would definitely recommend it. Liverpool is a city of students, a beautiful place with a rich history. It is peaceful and calm yet, at the same time, there is always something happening, catering for all interests. I love to walk around the docks, shop in the city centre and try out all of the great independent restaurants on Bold Street.

On graduation I would like to work on a magazine and then become a freelance journalist for large media organisations. Long term I would like to return to academia and become a lecturer.”
