The Journey

This is where the journey of a selection of active students in Mediazone with a definite industry advantage begins. Let’s see if we are a good fit!

Students receive a training certificate based on the yearly hours of training, via our organized Mediazone Training program. Mediazone also engages student volunteers, as volunteering is one of our core ideals, ensuring we are able to give back to both the University and outside communities. Our highly qualified student Studio assistants provide technical support and guidance for students and teaching staff both in our facilities and in the classroom environment.

Through the Mediazone scholarship: program – Studio assistantship, we mentor our team of students who train and work alongside professionals to receive an unprecedented experience that definitely sets them apart! Their work is posted on social media and on campus tvs – and becomes part of the media landscape on national radio and television broadcasts. Students are guided through real life situations, overcoming obstacles, gaining knowledge, confidence and empowerment. Self-development is always a part of the Mediazone experience.
