MA Publishing student and a John Henry Brookes Scholarship

Lacey Decker was awarded a John Henry Brookes Scholarship in 2008. She writes below of her experiences on the MA Publishing programme at Oxford Brookes.

MA Publishing student writes of his experiences after receiving an OICPS Scholarship

Arash Hejazi was awarded this OICPS scholarship, open to international students, in 2008. He has written about his experiences as an MA Publishing student at Oxford Brookes during 2008 and 2009.

I experienced the most exciting year of my life here. I met the absolutely friendly staff of the OICPS who did their best to make me feel at home and who were there for me whenever I needed any kind of help or advice. I never had a feeling of distance between me and my tutors. Now that the course is almost over, I am convinced that this relationship will not be over and they will still be there for me whenever I need them.
