What Do Graduates Do?

Professional Bodies

A Professional body or association is an organisation which represents a profession, and often sets the standards for professional qualification and for continuing professional development in that sector.  It can be useful for you to join your own professional body as a student member as it will help you to keep up to date with your sector, offers opportunities for networking, and perhaps give you an additional source of access to opportunities for graduates.

Royal Television Society - an educational charity promoting the art and science of television.

Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing - the UK’s only government-approved Institute for the professional development of direct and digital marketers.

Institute of Practitioners in Advertising - Trade and professional body for advertising, marketing and media communications agencies.

Event and Visual Communication Association (EVCA) - Professional body for the visual communication sector.

Advertising Standards Authority - the UK’s independent regulator of advertising across all media. 

PACT  -  the trade association representing the commercial interests of UK independent television, film, digital, children’s and animation media companies. Useful as a directory.
