So far, the life of a Publishing MA student at UCL has been an adventure of all sorts. As Marianne mentioned in her post below, there has been a small revolution that has occurred in each of us when it comes to our ideas surrounding publishing. Just from small chats after classes, I know that many people are now interested in areas of publishing they had barely even thought of before. The possibilities and options now seem endless now that our knowledge is expanding each week.
Aside from the academic life of a UCL student, the social life here is great. The two student reps have done a fantastic job in getting us all involved with a literary themed Children in Need Bake Sale (which raised a brilliant £175!), Books are my Bag Treasure Hunts, and an absolutely fantastic Christmas get together in the making. Not only are fellow students wonderful, the staff are friendly and welcoming, making the first term a treat. We’ve had so many work experience opportunities, and more free tickets to literary events than you could shake a stick at thanks to Mel, Nick, Sam, Martin and Iain. So far, so good for the life of a UCL Publishing student!
