Publishing Masters: Semester 1 Reflection

Semester 1 is over and with Semester 2 just around the corner, I feel suitably distanced from it to write about how it was without rolling myself into a ball and rocking softly.

2018 Resolutions

In order to stick to resolutions, I find it best to publish them to the internet so that I can hold myself accountable. I’ve already reflected on my 2017 resolutions and I’ve spent a considerable amount of time deciding on 2018 resolutions which are challenging but attainable - or at least, I hope they are.

2017 Resolution Reflection

What Do You Do On A Publishing Masters?

I’ve told you about why I chose to do a Master’s in Publishing, but what does it actually entail? Although I can only speak for my course at Oxford Brookes, there are similarities across the courses available in the UK.

I’m doing my Master’s full-time, which means it’s going to take 1 year. This year is split into 3 semesters: semester 1 runs until Christmas, semester 2 runs until May with a break for Easter, and semester 3 runs until the last day of September of 2018 a.k.a. the due date of my dissertation.
