2nd February 2001†
Prominent city journalists are giving Journalism students at the† University of Lincolnshire & Humberside a helping hand with their† careers.†
Richard Bowyer, assistant editor at the Lincolnshire Echo, Sean† Dunderdale, head of news at Lincs FM and Michael Hortin, sports† editor at BBC Radio Lincolnshire, will take part in journalism† masterclasses to be held at the Lincoln campus on Tuesday 6th† February.
The day has been organised by Debbie Wilson, senior lecturer in† Journalism at ULH, for final-year students about to embark on† careers in journalism so that they are able to receive advice and† guidance from the experts.†
Students will be able to ask questions and talk about the job† market in an open forum. "Itís great to have the support of the local† media - it will really motivate the students," said Debbie.
"My priority for the students is to help them find great jobs and the† more they know the better equipped they will be," she added.
Journalism students will graduate for the first time from ULH in July† 2001. This is the first in a series of guest lectures and workshops† for Journalism students over the next few months, which will† culminate in a visit from BBC sports presenter John Inverdale in the† spring.
