Irene studied for a master's degree in Publishing at City, University of London.
I completed the MA Course in Publishing at City in 2013/2014. Since the very beginning, I managed to take full advantage of the wide net of relations built by MaryAnn over the years. I carried out group projects that were evaluated by outstanding members of the industry, received their invaluable career advice and completed 7 placements in independent as well as corporate publishing houses. No matter where I was or in what department, I found that I could rely on the support of City's former students and staff. As a result, I got my first job in publishing months before the end of the course, which is exactly what I wanted to achieve when I applied for the MA.
