"Despite being on campus one day and then locked down the next, social isolation appears to have been a blessing in disguise for our students. The generosity of agencies, creatives, brands and organisations in terms of offering video crits, online “placements” and masterclasses has exposed students to a host of individuals and expertise that would have been a logistical nightmare to organise. But yet when the world comes to a standstill, creatives turn it up to 11. And I’m totally not surprised. What an amazing industry to be part of."
