Final Lecture

Standard

Today we have had our final lecture. We had visitors in to tell us about the amazing services that are available to us through the university after we graduate. There is obviously the Alumni Association who will keep us up to date with what it going on at the university. They will also let us now about any workshops and opportunities available to us and possibly get in touch if there is anything we can do for the university in terms of giving talks or participate in events. Most important of all the Alumni are arranging the reunions, which really isn’t relevant for another 10-15 years but still exciting.

The careers service is also available for us to access for up to three years after we graduate. They can help with job interview tips and creating the best CV. They can give advice on different careers and help you work towards our dream job.

We are also able to get advice from enterprise about setting up our own business and everything that goes along with that, tax, payments etc. This is a particularly useful service to have access to as a creative student, also for me as I am possibly going to be doing some event photography, I need to make sure that I have the necessary paperwork in order.

We are very lucky as students of the University of Cumbia to have access to these services and a lot more for free. Some universities do not offer these things, and I think we need to take advantage of them to be able to build the best career for ourselves.


It is such a sad thing to know that this was the last lecture I will have, but at the same time it just opens up a whole new world that I am excited to enter. The next month will be planning and setting up for the Degree Show. Next week I am going to be printing all my photographs, and then we just need to prepare the studios so we can put our work on the walls.

Today we got the floor plan for the Degree Show and I was lucky enough to get the spot that I wanted. I had requested a corner spot and I am very pleased to have this big corner space to fill with my photographs. I am going to have to revise my plan a bit as I will have more space than I expected, but I have plenty of photographs to choose from so I won’t have any problems filling the walls. Our studios will work as a contemporary gallery space with white and grey normal straight walls, but we all get to put our personal touch on it.

It is all about the exhibition from now on, and what I am looking forward to the most is being able to show my work to my family when they visit for the Degree Show. This semester has by far been the best, with a lot of freedom to just work on my project, but I still can’t believe it is all coming to an end.
