Lucky me, I got to attend the graduation ceremonies for my Masters course at the University of Leicester this past weekend. I graduated with a Masters in Museum Studies 'with Distinction', alongside the rest of my classmates from around the world. One of those classmates happens to be from the same city as me, so … Continue reading Graduation Celebrations!
Hello everyone and greetings from Exeter! Last weekend I moved down to the South West of England, to start my two month work placement at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM).
