Bernadette Salem

Degree: MA Film by Research

Why did you choose your course at Lancaster?

I went to a very small liberal arts college in the US which was nice, but for my postgraduate degree I wanted get the real university experience.

What is the best part of your course?

The department is very warm and welcoming, and feels like a small family.

What are you hoping to do when you finish university?

I won't be finished for a while since I'm staying on for a PhD, but eventually I hope to teach, research, and work in music video production on the side.

What is 'Lancaster life' like?

The campus itself is beautiful and so are many places nearby, such as Forest of Bowland, the Lake District, and Lune Riverside walk. People in Lancaster are generally very friendly and easy going and there is always something to do at the Uni and in town.  Everyday I wake up happy to be here!
