Alumni - Femke Posthumus, BA Publishing

Before I came to Oxford as an exchange student on the BA programme, I had never been away from home for a long time. I had no idea what to expect, and it turned out to be incredible. My classmates and lecturers were incredibly welcoming and made me feel at ease from day one.

The teaching is very different from what I was used to at my home university in Amsterdam, but I enjoyed it a lot. Especially all the interaction during the seminars and even in the lectures was great. Also the guest lectures by professionals from the working field gave an interesting insight in the publishing world. After five publishing modules in one semester I have learned a great deal about British publishing and gained a complete view of how publishing works.

I feel more confident and my time here has made me even more excited about publishing and I cannot wait to start my internship to apply everything I have learned here.

Publishing at Brookes is fun and interesting and I would definitely recommend the programme to anyone who wants to pursue a career in publishing.
