Hello, everyone! My name is Lim.I am from China. I am so excited to study Publishing Studies in the University of Stirling. This is my first time to study abroad, and I am very glad to meet you here! My undergraduate major was journalism. But after I read a lot of books and magazines, I found that they were amazing products, so I decided to study how to produce and edit a book or magazine. I am so interested in the content, color, cover and the production  process of books or magazines. I really hope that such a wonderful book or magazine is produced by myself. So I really want to have a chance to know and study Publishing Studies.

Even though e-books are much more popular in recent years, I am still keen on paper books. Paper books are traditional format books, and only when I hold a paper book in my hand can I feel that I am reading a real and wonderful book. Through studying publishing in University of Stirling, I hope that I can do my best to attract more and more people to read paper books. And I also believe that paper books will not disappear.

As far as I know, the Stirling Centre for International Publishing and Communication is a leading institute in the field of Publishing among European universities. It provides a comprehensive and coherent approach to all aspects of publishing. I am convinced that I will obtain more and more information and knowledge in the University of Stirling.

I chose publishing studies for my post-graduate study because I really love books! Besides, I’m interested in collecting interesting stories and to find good writers. In China, I majored in Packaging Engineering.  There are a lot of gifted writers, they should be noticed by the public and  their outstanding books should be shared with the people around the whole world, not only in my home country. Also, I think digital publishing is very interesting. In China, students work very hard and they got a lot of books to read. So, their schoolbag is very heavy. But I think they could get relaxed in the future because of e-books.

The field of publishing is constantly changing and many new and advanced things will appear like electronic books. It’s interesting and a motivation for me to keep going on to satisfy the people’s need. In the following days in University of Stirling, I will focus on the main courses through continuous reading and writing. Further, I will explore some relevant areas in publishing studies which could help me and broaden my horizon in the long run.

Lastly, University of Stirling is a leading institute in the field of publishing among the European universities. It provides the students with wide range of readings, advanced facilities and of course, excellent and experienced teachers. I really enjoy studying in Stirling.
