Will Fyfe graduated from the University of Worcester’s Journalism course, having already begun to establish a career in radio.
Will, who achieved a First Class degree, won a one-month placement at BBC Hereford and Worcester – part-funded by the University – after completing his studies.
He explains: “Working at Hereford and Worcester would never have been possible for me without all the additional help I received from the Journalism department and the university. They not only encouraged me to take the opportunity but were also able to part-fund my work placement through the University's scholarship fund.
"The funding helped towards my transport and accommodation costs for the month and without it I would never have been able to get to where I am right now."
The 22 year-old has since moved on to BBC Cambridgeshire, where he works on their mid-morning show.
Of his time at Worcester, Will says: “I've had a fantastic time at Worcester and have met some great people. I wasn't convinced about university at first but can't imagine where I'd be without it now.
“I achieved a First Class degree and there was a complete sense of relief when I realised I'd done so. I'd worked morning, noon and night on my assignments since the beginning of the year so it was a real mix of joy and relief.”
Will says that the variety and unpredictable nature of radio makes his current role an exciting one.
“Every day on the radio is completely different as you never know what stories you're going to be covering,” he explains.
"The best part of my role is the three hours I spend behind the glass in the studio helping to produce the show as we go out live on air. We take a lot of callers on so you never know what could happen next. There's always that element of risk but the edgier we can be - the more exciting it is for the listeners."
