Over the past three years, I have had so many incredible opportunities and experiences, so it 's difficult to pick just one highlight. Though, I would say my final year project was particularly rewarding. I had the chance to take on the role of TV Channel Manager and Scheduling Coordinator for CCI TV, and explore an area of the broadcast sector that has always fascinated me. It not only forced me to work independently and make contact with industry professionals, pushing me outside of my comfort zone, but it also made me realise what I am capable of achieving. The most rewarding part of all was having successfully produced a series of guidelines for the channel, in hope of implementing industry standard TV scheduling practices in the near future. Overall, my time at the University of Portsmouth has been invaluable, and with the help of my lecturers and course mates, I have grown in confidence and feel ready to start a new chapter as a soon-to-be graduate of the Television and Broadcasting course.

Although there have been times of great stress and panic, they are equalled by the reward and relief of finishing a project and having something you can look back on and feel incredibly proud about. My two highlights from my three years are completing a documentary that I put countless hours and effort into and the opportunity to broadcast live from the Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing Headquarters. Both of these opportunities presented massive amounts of issues, stress and lots of late nights but also gave me a learning experience that is second to none and that I will never forget. My three years on this course have gone by far too quickly, but I wouldn 't change a thing.

As I reach the end of my second year of BSc Television and Broadcasting, it has just started to sink in as to how fast my time at university is flying past. It seems like no time at all since I wrote at the end of my first year about how much I value the fact that the course allows me to spend all day working in an area I love. This remains true this year, in fact the last two years at the University of Portsmouth really have been the best.
It 's hard to pick just one stand out moment from this year, as there have been so many great experiences but I think getting to produce a live programme that was broadcast on the Big Screen Portsmouth in Guildhall Square was great. Seeing the culmination of so many months of hard work broadcast online and to Portsmouth 's locals was brilliant.
I 'm looking forward to having another year on the course, getting to further develop skills that will prove useful when I 'm working.

My most memorable moment from the past year was presenting live from Land Rover BAR in Old Portsmouth. It was fantastic to have the opportunity to present from such a picturesque location. This was the first outside broadcast I have ever worked on and it was so exciting! By setting up and broadcasting live from an unfamiliar location, we were definitely all put out of our comfort zones. However, in addition to it being my first outside broadcast, this was also the first show I 've worked on that was filmed using a 360 camera. It was amazing! I 'll be honest in saying I didn 't even notice the camera during the broadcast - it 's a lot smaller than I expected and, with all the excitement of the day, it didn 't even cross my mind to look out for it - but being able to watch the show back in 360 degrees was fascinating! Definitely my new favourite piece of kit.

Through the sweat and the tears of final year BSc Television and Broadcasting there has been achievement and success. Through my experience I believe being able to produce Live broadcasts on a weekly schedule was my highlight. Understanding what it is like taking on a responsibility not just for yourself but for your group. It has made me understand my weaknesses and strengths and has persuaded me that I love working within a fast paced environment. Another great highlight was the chance to advance on my skills and qualify as a PADI media diver. That experience will always be in my top 5. Overall my time here has been valuable it has taught me what I need to know but also has given me the push to learn what I want to know. Hence from July, I cannot wait to start my journey in the world of Broadcasting.

Throughout the past three years at university, having had many unbelievable opportunities and experiences, it has been difficult to choose but one would be creating and producing a documentary in my final year. As all the time and effort was worthwhile seeing the end product, this documentary 'Roofless ' taught myself a lot about the industry and society, all the problems that occurred and issues we dealt with and the overall process has been an incredible learning experience I won 't be quick to forget. As well as the documentary there has been many highlighted moments, one being the 'social networking manager ' for CCI TV, (a student run Television channel) something having enjoyed thoroughly through the year, learnt a lot about digital media, and hope to continue down this path in the future.
