Alumni - Louise Butler at Blackwell PublishingI completed the MA in Publishing at Oxford Brookes from 2005-6 and feel it was a genuinely positive and worthwhile experience, both in terms of knowledge gained and insight into the industry but also for the many contacts and friends I’ve acquired.
The department is extremely friendly and inclusive and the lecturers enjoy plenty of industry experience between them, which they are more than happy to pass on to their students. The course was lively, sociable and gave me the confidence to start my career in academic publishing. Oxford is a great place to live, study and work – I am now settled here and after having previously worked at Berg Publishers for over a year, I have very recently started work within the academic books department at Blackwell Publishing.
