Ever since I was in high school, I knew I wanted to go into the publishing industry and my Bachelor in English Studies seemed like the first logical step. Coming from an international background, I always thought that I would continue my education and do my master’s course outside of Scotland and spread my wings a little. However, having nearly completed the first semester of the MLitt Publishing Studies course, I’m very glad I decided to remain in Stirling. The class is very international and, just from the other students, I’ve learned a lot about the variety of publishing in different countries. The staff, all having had previous professional experience in the publishing industry, give a very detailed and clear insight to what’s ahead for the rest of us. The course can be very intense but its interactive nature allows us a chance to experience many of the processes necessary in the creation of a book. I started off the course as a fresh bachelor graduate, worried about all the things I had yet to learn, but now I keep looking ahead to see what’s next.
