    After two years on the BA Multimedia Journalism course at Bournemouth University, I decided to transfer to Middlesex University partly to pick up a PR module after growing incredibly interested in the field. I achieved a 2:1, with my dissertation being one of the highest in the year as well as my Nike anti-knife crime PR campaign.
