JMU Journalism’s final year students took the opportunity to reflect, say goodbye and have more than a few drinks as their three years of study drew to a close, following the end of their coursework deadlines.


The students were joined by staff members at Hannah’s Bar in Liverpool city centre to celebrate their time at the Liverpool Screen School and relax after the stresses of dissertation and final project.


Digital Content Editor Angela Brooks said: “I cannot believe it has been three years, it has gone so fast! I’ve met some really amazing people and have really enjoyed myself... I just wish it didn’t have to end.”


Website Producer Jonathan Birchall echoed Angela’s sentiments about his time on the course. He said: “Coming to the end of the course is a little bit surreal. Meeting so many different, talented people has been the highlight for me and I just hope that I'll get to work with them again when we all head off into the big, wide world."


Many of the students will move out and leave Liverpool in the next couple of weeks to go their separate ways in search of work in their chosen field.


But, if their results come out they way they want, they will be reunited one last time in the city to celebrate the reward for all their efforts at the Journalism graduation ceremony on 12th July at the Anglican Cathedral.
