Hello everyone

I have been offered a place on a Publishing MA course at Kingston University.
Can anyone tell me if it's a good course and whether or not it will greatly enhance the likelihood of gaining full-time employment in the industry upon graduation?

I would also be grateful to hear from anyone that has done the course and can tell me about their experience.

Thank you!

Look at jobs you're interested in and see what the requirements are. If this course is a requirement you need it. If not then I suspect work experience will help. You'll be as employable as you make yourself.

Hi to quote from our website "
In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate. As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:
  • placements;
  • working or studying abroad;
  • volunteering;
  • peer mentoring roles; and
  • internship opportunities within and outside the University.
In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level."and we also have a list of regular employers
