I found my time at Oxford Brookes both enjoyable and a great help in starting my career in publishing. As well as giving me the skills I needed when I entered publishing, the course also gave me a valuable context for those skills, with study of different disciplines such as production or marketing and areas of publishing such as trade, academic and educational.
This context has been extremely useful and something that many graduates miss out on when they start their career in a particular company or market sector.

I found my time on the Oxford Brookes publishing Masters really valuable in two key ways. On a theoretical level, I was able to walk into my first job understanding what was happening in each division of the company and how they all contributed to the publishing process, and on a practical level, I had all the relevant skills in place to do my job and lots of great ideas for developing my role and function besides.

I was given great advice by the lecturers regarding choosing a dissertation topic. It was suggested that I choose a topic that would provide me with a learning platform for the skills needed for the job I wanted to do after the course (in my case, e-marketing).

We were really encouraged and supported in finding work experience. I found this an essential part of the course: I got my first job with the company I had worked with as an intern, which enabled me to enter at Marketing Executive level rather than as a Marketing Assistant.
