Charlie follows his passion for journalism
“I’d like to be a journalist as I really enjoy writing and telling people’s stories,” says Bachelor of Laws / Communications & Media student, Charlie.
Charlie acknowledges the hands-on experience he has received in his degree with giving him the skills and understanding to realise his passion for journalism.
“The highlight of my degree has been the work experience. My journalism lecturer was able to get me linked with a local newspaper. It’s been great getting some hands-on experience and realising that you’re interested in the field as well.”
Charlie credits the small community at Notre Dame with allowing him to easily meet people and the small class sizes have allowed him to develop close relationships with his lecturers and tutors.
“I’ve developed as a person because at Notre Dame, it’s not just about your subject area that you’re studying. You learn to consider the whole person. I think especially with law and journalism it’s really important to have an awareness of social justice and how your actions affect people.”
“I chose to come to Notre Dame because when I went to all the university Open Days, this definitely had the best vibe and the community feel that I wanted to be a part of,” he said.
“I received my offer to study at Notre Dame through the early offer program, which emphasised to me that Notre Dame really do look care about your personal attributes, as well as academics.”
