OK, so, this is amazing, and I had no idea it existed until the lovely Alia emailed me the other day. Profile Books have teamed up with City University to offer a scholarship for the City Publishing MA. They’ll pay for your entire tuition AND you’ll be mentored by Profile’s MD, Andrew Franklin, throughout the course. HOW GOOD DOES THAT SOUND? Talk about getting a good start to your career!
As well as meeting the demands of City University (having a 2:1 and evidence of commitment to publishing and/or research into the course), these are the requirements for application to the scholarship:
1) demonstrate commitment and aptitude to develop a career in publishing,
2) provide evidence that their financial circumstances are such that only such a Scholarship would make the MA programme possible
3) BME candidates with the right to live and work in the UK are especially welcome.
This is so good I’m tempted to apply myself?? Do you think John Blake will let me work part time?
Alia from Profile sent me all the details about it, so if you want to know more just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can forward it over. Here’s the link to the City Publishing MA page, and here’s the Profile Books website so you can swoon over Mary Beard’s SPQR.
