Student Profile

David Godridge

Graduated in 2019

What made you choose NTU?

“After the top quality undergraduate course I completed through NTU this was hands down the place I wanted to be to complete a postgraduate course too, it allowed me to continue with the same teaching patterns and techniques and not have to readjust to a new environment so I could focus on my postgraduate course in the most beneficial way.”

What do you enjoy most about your course at NTU?

“The thing I enjoy most about MA Media and Globalisation is the amount of different subject areas covered on the course, from cosmopolitan and colonialism to photography and advertising to social media and political studies. I was initially sceptical about this as I worried it meant nothing would be taught in great detail, but once starting the course and noticing how well it was taught it became instantly clear to me how it was going to help my range of knowledge, thinking and expertise.”

“The course staff are very supportive. They actively make the effort to get to know us and clearly want us to benefit from the postgraduate experience as much as we do. They keep the course structure well-tuned and organised and will find any opportunity to get us out of the lecture room to increase our cultural experiences and explore many different ways of teaching. This includes trips to cinemas, museums, creative organisations and a whole range of guest speakers.”

Why would you recommend your course / NTU to someone looking to study in that area?

“I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to broaden their depth of knowledge of the world as it covers so much ground in a global context. I would also recommend it because it provides you with many practical skills such as photography, filming and editing; communications digitally and face to face; as well as equipping you with skills and information for postgraduate employment.”

What has been your greatest achievement at NTU so far?

“My greatest achievement at NTU so far (other than graduating with my undergraduate degree) would be taking the role of course representative for MA Media and Globalisation, this has made my postgraduate experience a lot more meaningful and also allowed me to spark many connections with my course-mates and teaching staff. It has also allowed me to be very involved with the course and understand the experiences of my fellow students.”
