The University of East Anglia’s Dr. Thomas Roebuck and Dr. Katherine Hunt, both of whom are knowledgeable in early modern scholarship and collecting practices, will be in charge of supervising this project. Julian Harrison and Dr. Andrea Clarke, who are the lead curators of Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts at the British Library, will also be involved. The student who receives this prize will have a primary residence at UEA, but they will spend a considerable amount of time residing at the BL as well. At UEA, you will become a part of a thriving community of researchers interested in the Middle Ages and Early Modern times, and you will have access to a variety of training opportunities. At the British Library, on the other hand, you will benefit from access behind the scenes, the opportunity to learn from other professionals across the Library, and an extensive training program offered in-house. You will also become a member of the larger group of students receiving funding from the CDP all throughout the UK, and you will be entitled to take part in CDP Cohort Development Events. This studentship allows for either full- or part-time study to be pursued.
About the Scholarship:
The Institution of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich, England, is a public research university. Founded in 1963, the university’s 320-acre (130-hectare) site west of the city center houses four colleges and 26 academic departments. Norwich, a lively city with a rich history just outside of London, is home to a beautiful parkland campus. Due to the city’s rich history and abundance of castles and churches, it is a very safe place to live. The School of International Development at the University of East Anglia (UEA) is a major global hub of excellence in international development research and teaching. In order to make a positive impact on the world, the school is committed. Faculty members frequently offer policy recommendations on global concerns like poverty reduction and environmental sustainability. In the 2015 Guardian University Guide, UEA was ranked 5th for Geography and Environmental Studies, with 98% of students satisfied with their programme and 97% satisfied with the education that they received. As a part of their degree, students are often required to complete a work placement or internship. The Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) ranks the School of International Development 4th in the UK for overall research, with 74% of its research assessed “World-leading” or “Internationally exceptional” (Times Higher Education).
A total of 26 schools of study make up each of the university’s four academic faculties. A wide variety of degree programs are available at each of these universities in the sciences, medicine and health care, humanities/social sciences/arts, and the arts and humanities. There are around 200 student groups and sports clubs at the University of East Anglia’s Student Union, which cater to a wide range of interests, including but not limited to music and athletics, debating, dancing, and so on. About 16,872 people are enrolled, including 12,888 undergrads and 3,984 graduate students. There are 3,712 employees on the company’s administrative staff, all of whom are dedicated to keeping things running properly. In terms of research citations, it is one of the top 50 universities in the world according to THE 2019 global university ranking. A large number of renowned alumni have gone on to achieve great success and distinction in their fields as a result of their education at the university. One of the best-known English novelists, short story writers, and screenwriters in the world, Sir Kazuo Ishiguro, graduated from the University of East Anglia in 2017.
Another prominent alumnus of the university is Gurinder Chadha, a well-known British film director best known for such films as Bend It Like Beckham and Bride and Prejudice. Other honorees include Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles, Dame Jenny Abramsky, a Climate Scientist, Anil Baijal (Delhi’s current Lieutenant Governor), Adam Shareef (Maldives’ Defense Minister Joseph Greenwell), and Sir Paul Nurse (an English geneticist). All international students and their families are supported by the Foreign Student Advisory Team throughout their time at UEA. Norwich’s pre-departure handbook provides information on visas, transportation, and campus life. In order to help students acclimate to university life in the UK, the Student Advice Team will organize orientation programs and events during arrival week. Students can also apply for a UEA Friends buddy to help them with their transition. The International Student email list keeps all international students up to date on important information and events throughout the year. The Advisory Team works together with government agencies like the Home Office and the British Council to ensure that the needs of East Anglia’s international students are fully met.
More than 3,000 spaces are available for new international students who apply before the deadline. There are en suite and shared bathrooms, as well as kitchens and dining areas in each room, at the University of East Anglia, making it one of the best values in UK student housing. Homestays with English families and private rentals are available in Norfolk. UEA’s 300-acre campus sits two miles outside of Norwich’s city center and is home to the University of East Anglia. The parkland, woodlands, and Broad Lake are all within walking distance of the school, providing enough opportunities for pupils to study, explore, or simply take in the scenery. By road, train, and air, the University of East Anglia is easily accessible. In addition, Norwich International Airport is only a two-hour train ride away from London. Tens of thousands of people visit the city each week to shop and socialize, making it an important regional center. The University of East Anglia is a 15-minute drive from the city center on a daily and nightly bus route in the city’s south-west suburbs. Many major UK airports have direct flights to Norwich International Airport, and it takes approximately 10-15 minutes for you to reach on campus from there.
