Publishing BA(Hons): What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Name: Naomi Peel

"The tutors bring a wealth of knowledge to their teaching. Every one of them is actively working within publishing and this lends great weight to everything they teach. They each play to their strengths in the modules they deliver and are always there when you need them. They are incredibly supportive and will help you find your place in the industry and drive you to success."

 

Name: Francesca Hopwood
Course: Publishing MA
Employer: Product Executive, Scholastic Clubs and Fairs

"Working on the practical production assignment made me see where my strengths lie and how they could be used within a real publishing project. It made me realise just how much I appreciate design, where the possibility that I might one day typeset and design some beautiful books seems more real than ever. Ripple is something that I can pick up and look at and say ‘I was part of that'. I cannot wait to do it again."

 

Name: Lisa Winn
Course: Publishing MA

"All the teachers on the course are very knowledgeable. They've worked in the industry themselves and so they know what they're talking about. I've also enjoyed the masterclasses – we've had a lot of outside professionals come in and teach us about their careers and how they got started in publishing and where publishing's going in the future."

 

Name: Frankie Jones
Course: Publishing MA
Employer: Editorial Assistant, City & Guilds Publishing

"I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process of creating Ripple. I learnt a lot as a budding publisher, I was able to put into practice lessons taught on the MA Publishing and we have a clean, crisp, exciting publication to show for it."

 

Name: Amy Cartwright
Course: Publishing MA
Employer: Business Development Executive, Charity Retail Association

"The masterclasses are an excellent way to learn about different job roles in the publishing industry. The speakers work in all areas of publishing so it's very insightful to hear different perspectives on the business. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and get first-hand answers from professionals. It can be a great way to network too – I ended up securing a work placement at Weidenfeld & Nicolson by talking to publishing director, Alan Samson, before he gave a masterclass."
