"DFEi was probably one of the best experiences I have ever had. I had gone to a university before and it is very large and daunting, whereas DFEi is very personable. The radio teachers are all working in media so it help me make good connections in the industry. I also made lifelong friends with the people on my course. For two weeks in February we ran a daily radio station from within the college, The WAVE. This was a fantastic experience you couldn’t get anywhere else. It was intense but so worth it."
