I was luckily enough to be accepted onto a Travel Bursary trip to Madrid with my university this year. A group of 16 media and journalism students went to Madrid this June for a week. Whilst we were out there we wrote articles, made videos and took photos of events and attractions that represented the local culture. As a journalism student, my role was to write articles for the website which you can find here.
Travel bursaries are a brilliant way for students to travel but also get some experience and new skills which they can later apply to their course or chosen career path. Madrid for me was an amazing adventure and it has opened my eyes about the world.
