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".
