I chose to study at this university because of its commitment to the Gàidhlig language and culture and I chose the course because I enjoy camera work and editing, which this course combines with Gàidhlig. I’ve been lucky enough to undertake a placement at BBC Alba’s studios at Pacific Quay, Glasgow, where I received first-hand experience of various types of media production through the Gàidhlig medium.

I thoroughly enjoyed my past four years in Skye and was very lucky to have had the best lecturers for both Gaelic and media studies.
