Graduate Media and Cultural Studies

Sissi TangHi everyone, my name is Sissi Tang and I graduated in 2010 from Lancaster University. I completed a BA degree in Media and Cultural Studies.
I had an amazing three years at Lancaster University. I learned a lot from my courses, not only theories that help me to understand attitudes in the world but my course also created opportunities for me. For example, I created a short film with my classmates as a team and in my final year and I made a long documentary for my dissertation. I also did a summer internship with Vogue and Michael O’Mara Books in London.

No doubt, University is a challenge to everyone, especially to someone who is like me. To come aboard to speak and study a second language is a daunting task, but it also provides you with a feeling of success. I fully understand your fear and adventurism, but do not be worried about this point. Lancaster is fully equipped with the resources to support you from first year to the final year. People are nice here and I have made lots of friends. I am so glad I spent part of my youth in Lancaster. This beautiful small town has the footprints of us everywhere.

Currently, I am working for the Chinese Education Initiative, which is an American Non-Profit Organization leading change to education in rural China.  As one 2010-2012 fellow, I am teaching English in the rural area of Yunnan Province, China, to children in grades 3 to grades 7. When I decided to take a gap year after graduation, the first thing on my mind was that I wanted to go back to my motherland China. I looked to do something significant and to help me understand the inside of Chinese society. I am here helping to educate children from less affluent backgrounds to help me understand the world. This also gives me the opportunity to continue using the skills that I have learned from my courses. In particular I am planning to shoot a documentary about rural China, focusing on the education situation.

I would like to strongly recommend Lancaster University to you, if you want to study in a peaceful and high-standard university. If you want to get to know new friends from all over the world and you want to see the beautiful scenery that is outside of your dorm window. If you want to have achievements in your future then choose Lancaster as it is one of the best opportunities for you to take advantage of. 

Lancaster University has made me complete. I am proud that I went to Lancaster and I am forever grateful.
