GRANT FOR AN MA FILM AND TELEVISION
Claire Stevens was delighted to receive her grant from the YLCE towards her above course. Claire undertook her course to develop her academic work and to prepare for undertaking a PhD in the future.
The grant was incredibly beneficial to her studies as she had to have a lot of contact with university staff particularly in her first semester which did not allow her much time for paid work. Claire gained so much confidence in her first term as the grant went towards enabling her to focus completely on her studies.
Overall, the MA provided her with a broader and more detailed understanding of such theories as Culture Studies, Sociology, Digital Cultures and Film and Television Studies.
Claire would like to let future successful applicants know what a great help this grant has been and hopes in the future to be able to donate herself to upcoming applicants.
