Georgia Roberts | UK Scholar

Georgia Roberts, aged 22 from Nottingham, is awarded £9,875 towards the MA in Broadcast Journalism at City University, London.

I know now that I can surge forward in my career with the knowledge that I have the backing of BAFTA, which gives me so much confidence.

Georgia graduated from the University of Exeter earlier this year with a BA in English. While at Exeter, Georgia successfully bid for a year in the media industry as part of her degree. During this year, she held an editor-at-large position at the G-20Y Association in Switzerland and completed work placements with Sky News and Capital FM. She also regularly contributed to the Telegraph as a student writer and completed a position working with BBC One’s Sunday Politics programme during the 2017 general election.

Georgia says: “It is an absolute privilege to have been awarded the BAFTA scholarship. I know now that I can surge forward in my career with the knowledge that I have the backing of BAFTA, which gives me so much confidence. I cannot wait to begin engaging with the association, as well as taking advantage of all the amazing access being a BAFTA recipient will certainly grant me as I work towards my goals.”
