Publishing is my accidental career. It never crossed my mind during my first degree of studies that I was going to be in publishing. I joined publishing in 2002 and since then I have never turned back. It amazed me the first time I got into it and continues to amaze me until now. Being in publishing demands our understanding on multi disciplines, skills and technologies and it involves dealing with many people from scholars, editors, designer, printers and traders.  My enthusiasm for publishing has brought me to Stirling and I found that the MLitt in Publishing Studies here is as great as it is reputed.

The UK perspective on publishing somehow is different from Malaysia and MLitt in Publishing Studies has helped me a lot in exploring new perspective in the book industries.  I believed that I have and will gain a lot more from the courses that involved various programmes and task provided by the instructors and department.

My aim and hope is to be able to apply all the knowledge and experienced acquired in Stirling to my career establishment in Malaysia
