Our vibrant, modern University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally and we have ambitious plans for our future.Â Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investments. With an annual income of Â£163m, over 30,000 students and 2,000 staff, we are a major force for higher education in the East of England.
The Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, is pleased to announce Arts and Humanities Research Council funding a MA Studentship in Publishing.
Towards the furthering of our research strengths we have been awarded AHRC funding for studentships for study in departments on our Cambridge Campus.
The MA Publishing studentship will enable one student to take our highly successful course, designed to prepare candidates for their first job in the publishing industry (with a 100% success rate in sending graduates into full-time paid employment within six months of completing the course). The course trains students in all areas of the trade, from editorial to sales and marketing, and is very industry-focused, with masterclasses led by industry professionals. Students are also able to take optional key skills short courses alongside their core modules, as well as undertake internships at top publishing houses such as Bloomsbury, HarperCollins and Cambridge University Press.Â
Further details of the course are available at: www.anglia.ac.uk/mapublishing
