The MLitt course at Stirling was my first approach to the publishing industry. I come from a creative background in Graphic Design so what I learned from this course has been essential not only for the understanding of the trade but also for setting new career goals. I learned how an exciting industry it is and found many more areas I wanted to be involved in apart from the design field. I specially enjoyed the publishing project and saw my classmates’ excitement for the challenge too.

The course was designed as a practical approach where projects and examples were meant to reproduce what working in a publisher is, and debating problems they were facing at the time. It was like training for the job.

I am very pleased with what I learned and how I learned it, even if it took a lot of effort and research on my behalf to keep up with the level. After this experience and the knowledge I gathered, I am pursuing a PhD in digital content, an interest that started when working on my dissertation.

The University campus and city of Stirling are beautiful and the atmosphere is great, which does not hurt when studying for your masters degree.
