This collaboration aims to support aspiring media professionals in their educational journey and provide them with invaluable work experience opportunities. The bursary programme will not only alleviate financial burdens but also open doors to a promising career in the media industry.
The MediaHeads 360 Bursary Programme offers exceptional third-year students an extraordinary opportunity to receive financial support towards their fees, along with the chance to gain practical work experience, and mentorship and potentially secure a paid 12-month internship with MediaHeads 360 in 2024.
