A student from the Department of Theatre, Film and Television has been selected for the prestigious Santander Digital Leaders programme.

Hope Kemp, a second year student on the BSc in Film and Television Production, has been chosen for The Santander Digital Leaders programme, which gives four exceptional students the first steps towards a career in digital media. The programme is supported by Santander Universities UK, and along with the other three, Hope will be offered the opportunity to network with organisations and individuals with proven expertise in the digital field. Some of these contacts will be York alumni and others will come from the University’s wider networks, such as employers like Twitter, Google and Microsoft as well as fast moving start-ups. She will also receive a grant worth £1,000 to enable her to undertake training and work experience opportunities, both in the UK and globally.
