Hachette Livre UK Publishing Scholarship Success

Hazel Lancefield, a student on the MA Publishing course was awarded a Hachette Livre UK Publishing Scholarship in 2008. She writes about her experience on the Master's in Publishing at Oxford Brookes.

Hazel writes:

"Perhaps the aspect of the course which I have most appreciated so far has been the richness of the overview of the publishing industry, through the course itself and external events such as the London Book Fair, and SYP and OPuS meetings."

Student writes about Cambridge Publishing Scholarship Success

Aimée Walker, a student on the MA Publishing course was awarded the Cambridge Publishing Scholarship in 2008. She writes about her experience on the Master's in Publishing at Oxford Brookes.

Aimée writes:

"Thanks to Oxford Brookes Publishing Department's excellent industry links there are plenty of opportunities for us to do work experience. New placements are regularly put up on the Brookes website. I worked as an editorial assistant for Collins Education one day a week for six months. This complemented the course very well and enabled me to put the editorial skills I was learning into practice, including proofreading and copy-editing".
