Last Thursday night was a milestone for students on the MSc Publishing and MSc Magazine Publishing courses: our degree show finally launched!

Just before opening…

Thursday was a special invite-only event for friends, family and industry professionals. After a gruelleing trimester of intense live projects and academic essays, weeks of preparation and crossing the finish line for our outstanding deadlines, we were thrilled to be able to show off all our hard work and discuss the projects in detail.

All four live projects had their own exhibition space, featuring;
