Student Profile(s)

Robyn

Robyn Evans studied for her undergraduate degree in English Literature at LJMU before moving on to a Masters in Mass Communications.

“These days I think you need a postgraduate qualification to stand out from the crowd and I decided to study Mass Communications as it seemed a good way of covering all aspects of media.

One of the great things about my Masters is the small class size. There are just eight of us on the programme so lecturers can focus on our individual interests. One session we can be talking about gaming or music and the next we will be looking at fashion blogging. I am particularly enjoying doing the research for my dissertation. I have been able to concentrate on my interests and so the research doesn’t seem like work at all.

Initially Masters study was a little harder than I imagined but I think that was because I was studying a completely new subject. It is certainly manageable though - as long as you are able to work independently.

From being young I have always been drawn to LJMU as it seems a much more modern and creative university than many others. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere but you always know that the help is there when you need it. The fact that the Faculties are in different areas of the city is also good as our tutors encourage us to mix with other disciplines and that really helps to develop your networking skills.

In terms of the city itself I really love Liverpool and would happily move here to work.

Masters study for me has been a much better option than going straight into work. It has given me the opportunity to really think about what I want to do. I now know I want to get into digital writing and eventually work freelance. The experience has taught me how to work independently and given me more of a professional work ethic.

If you are worried about the cost of a Masters remember that you can work part-time and pay your fees in instalments. Postgraduate study has certainly been the right decision for me.”
