College Life

I am a media student in  Acadamh na hOllscoilaíochta Gaeilge based in Carraroe which is  a branch of NUIGalway. I am studying Na Dana Cumarsáid! As part of the course I learn about Radio,Television/Film and Journalism through irish. I’m in my second year of a four year degree and next year I will begin my 9 month placement in TG4 ( excitinggg eeeep).

As a media student we get to do a ton of practical stuff with cameras and with microphones and studio time.  I’ve had 12 week radio programme as Gaeilge on Flirt Fm, where I learned how to present and produce a radio show with a team. I mainly did presenting and I got to interview a lot of cool people! So far this has been my favourite module!

Other modueles have included script writing, producing a film, editing sound and video, presenting skills in front of the camera, learning HTML and Gimp.

I plan to write about some of the stuff I’m working on and stuff that I have completed as part of my course !

So watch this space there’s more to come,

  1. I think that dealing with cameras, microphones, and spending some studio time could actually be cool. And I bet it’s quite educating for someone in the field of communications. Anyway, while college can require a lot of time and money, I think managing both properly will be the best lesson one would learn along the way. Heck, that'll definitely be useful once you graduate. Good day!
