Alumni - Kate FordeI very much enjoyed my time at Brookes (English Literature & Publishing BA, 1995). The flexibility of the modular course allowed me access to many areas of study which complemented my main degree courses (in my first year I took Law as well) and allowed me to broaden my horizons. I felt also that being able to choose your own modules encourages 'ownership' of the course, leading to a more focused approach to study. Whilst English Lit. was my passion when I arrived, I felt that the Publishing course offered far more in the way of practical, vocational guidance, and invaluable tutelage from seasoned industry professionals, which was a real bonus. Another advantage of this course is that many of the people I met on my course have since become useful business contacts!
