My Year in Industry at Dolby Laboratories

I recently caught up with Dan, who is about to finish his year placement at Dolby; here are his thoughts and reflections.

“Over Easter 2016, I was looking at my CV and although I was happy with what I had achieved at University thus far – I had partaken in enough work experience and society events for my satisfaction – I decided I needed to throw myself out of my comfort zone. I looked at placement years, but thought why would I want to take a year out? An opportunity came up at Dolby, so I applied, thinking the best scenario would be some invaluable interview experience and some handy pointers on how to improve.”

My Year in Industry at Focusrite

I recently caught up with Adam, who is about to finish his year placement at Focusrite; here are his thoughts and reflections.

I picked this course and University specifically because it stood out head and shoulders above the rest. I visited a few other Universities with much stricter entry requirements before visiting Solent but the team, facilities and course in general stood out by a mile.”

Whilst the Media Technology programme has been designed to be applied, it can sometimes still feel like a lot of theory to take on board. But did you know that you can suspend your studies for a year to complete an industry placement?
