    Teaching Philosophy and Experience

    Brendan has taught across the fields of advertising, public relations and media, and has experience of both module and programme leadership in these domains. He believes passionately in placing students at the heart of the learning process and gives them ample opportunities to shape their curricula through online surveys, informal classroom discussions and formal meetings. He also believes in using education as a means of promoting and enhancing social mobility, and is committed to ensuring that all those who lack access to higher education or are otherwise marginalised in it recieve the support and guidance they need to excel in their studies.
