I decided to stay on with the University of Stirling after getting my first degree (BA Hons in English Studies) because I wanted to expand my range of skills more before attempting to get into the job market. From my years here at Stirling I have found the campus a very relaxed and friendly place, and the teaching excellent.

I decided to choose to go into Publishing specifically because I knew I wanted my next degree to still be related to literature, as it is something I am very passionate about. Having an interest in the publishing industry, I talked to some of the people in charge of organising the course as well as comparing the course at Stirling to those held in other parts of the country. I was pleasantly pleased to discover that out of the other courses offered in several universities, I favoured Stirling the most.

The curriculum for the MLitt in Publishing Studies is challenging and interesting, providing students with a wide array of practical and theoretical skills ranging across public speaking, through report writing and market research.

I’ve greatly appreciated the chance to work with so many fellow students from all over the globe, and the chance to take part in this course.
