Alumni - Alex Glen - BA Publishing
Alex completed work experience with both Mixmag and Maxim magazines and continues to freelance for Mixmag.
The skills and information that I have learnt from Brookes proved to be very helpful when starting my first work experience placement. Not only did it allow me keep up with everything that was being done, it also allowed me to ask the right questions and see how the processes we learn about are implimented in real life.
The magazine module is vital if you want to work within magazine publishing. Not only does it provide you with much needed knowledge for working on a magazine, it also (to an extent) prepares you for the working environment. I would recommend the publishing course to anyone who is seriously considering it as a profession, Brookes gives a clear and realistic view of the industry/ workplace.
