Bristol Sport Embarks On UWE Partnership

Bristol Sport has embarked on a new innovative partnership with University of the West of England.

Film Making and Journalism students from the UWE Bower Ashton campus have been given a unique opportunity to film live sporting events with professional clubs from Bristol Sport’s group.

The partnership allows students to gain valuable work experience by filming at matches involving Bristol City, Bristol Rugby and Bristol Flyers.

Senior technical instructor for Film Making and Journalism, Rod Gray, is excited by the link and the interest shown by the students: “We’re delighted that more than 50 Film Making and Journalism students have signed up to film sporting coverage for Bristol City, Bristol Rugby and Bristol Flyers this season.

“Teaming up with three professional sports clubs on our doorstep offers our students unique work experience that ties directly into their TV and Online production training.”

Andrew Billingham, Bristol Sport CEO, said: “It’s a win-win partnership; the students gain valuable experience for their studies by working alongside our highly-skilled Communications department.

“At the same time, supporters of our clubs are able to benefit from the additional coverage on Bristol Sport TV and the clubs’ individual channels.”

Lynn Barlow, UWE’s director of creative industries, said: “We pride ourselves on our partnerships to ensure our students get the very best experiences and opportunities before they enter the world of work.

“Sports coverage is a very popular career ambition for many studying journalism and film making and through this new partnership with Bristol Sport they will be able experience the realities first hand.”
