For my undergrad, I studied English in Trinity College Dublin. I wanted to stay within the English sphere for my masters, and publishing had been in my mind for a few years as something that I would like to do. This course was the first publishing one I looked at, years back. In third and fourth year, when I started researching courses more seriously, I found that this one was the one I always came back to. My research and my visit to the university during the summer confirmed that this was the right course and the right university for me, and my work experience after my visit made me certain that this was what I really wanted.

So far I’m really enjoying it. The classes are very interesting and I feel that the wide range of projects, exercises and assignments are giving me a lot of practical experience. The staff are all very knowledgable in their fields, and the speakers who visit us weekly are great for opening your eyes to the range of things entailed in publishing and related industries.

Looking forward to the rest of the year, especially the publishing project!
