Das Beste I chose this course because I heard it is very good, I got a lot of hands-on experience and we get to use new technology in this field. Professors are amazing as they help us out with new techniques and work. In addition, I also did a placement in the BBC. It was only one month, but I gained a lot of experience and I was even promoted to assistant producer. I was also given one week work as a bonus.
