Description

If you are interested in pursuing a career in Journalism, Radio, or Film & TV, then be sure to join us for the University of Hull's Media Alumni Day.

We're delighted to be able to welcome back an impressive group of alumni contributors who have gone on to forge succesful careers in the Media after completing their studies in Hull. They will be contributing to a day of talks, workshops and networking, so come along and take advantage of their experience, expertise and insights and find out what a career in the media really means.

Join us at 10.00 in the Wilberforce Concourse for refreshments before the event begins.

There will be a series of short talks from 10.30 until 12.00 in Wilberforce Lecture Theatre 1.

We will return to the Concourse for a Networking lunch until 13.00.

After lunch, guests will have a choice of workshops to attend.

The event will end at 14.00.
