My Client – Jackie Goodman

After some thought, I decided that I would broach Jackie about working to help promote our degree and what it offers to potential applicants.

Client – Jackie: Head of Journalism and Digital Media @HSAD

Aim – Promote the Course and increase interest and application for new academic year.

Why – HSAD is the only college based Journalism degree to be awarded BJTC accreditation

The welcomes a more diverse range  of pupils to attend.

Smaller class size allows more access to tutors and resources.

Smaller classes allow students to me more than a name and number on a paper.

The cost is approx. £3000 per year less than Trinity or Huddersfield

Hull is a great city with reasonable living costs and great facilities
