Wondered about a career in publishing? What about doing the MA at Anglia Ruskin? It's Cambridge's publishing degree, and is backed by local and national publishing companies who want it to be a professionally focussed course that establishes Cambridge as a centre of excellence in publishing graduates.

A 1 year full-time (2 years part-time) course, it will give you the chance to gain valuable skills and networks within the industry. We also have some really great bursaries on offer -- and the deadline for one of the largest is coming up very soon - the Stationers' Bursary, worth £6000, has a closing date of June 10th, so do, please put in your application as soon as possible to stand a chance of being put forward! You have to be under 25 and a UK/EU passport holder - all other details can be found here:

In addition, all offer holders can also apply for the Hart McLeod Scholarship, and the exciting opportunity to go as an intern to Shakespeare and Co, in Paris, this summer. Again, check the link above for details!

Very thrilling news is that we have just heard that the AHRC has awarded us a full studentship for the Publishing MA for this year, next year and 2013! This is a huge deal- fees and maintainance are covered, and we will be advertising for this year's recipient as soon as we can release the full details. Please email me if you would like me to send you the details once we have them.....

Meanwhile, you are all warmly invited to our end of year event on July 6th, at the Anglia Ruskin's Helmore Building, on East Road. 6-8pm. Come and meet this year's students, see some of their work,and meet our publishing partners, over some wine and refreshments! Please RSVP if you would like to come!
