My experience of the International Placement Scheme
Unsure about whether to apply for this year’s International Placement Scheme or working on your application and in need of some advice? If so, then you have come to the right place.
Five years ago, Hannah Bayley from Keele University was in a similar position. She was two months into her PhD looking at sound and music in Japanese ‘ghost’ cinema, when she happened to read about the scheme in a promotional e-mail.
She applied and in 2014 did a five-month fellowship at the International Research Centre for Japanese Studies, (part of the wider National Institutions for Humanities) in Kyoto, Japan.
Read more about how her time in Japan helped her research on the AHRC Research Beyond Borders blog.
Hannah is currently writing up her PhD dissertation and here she remembers her trip and what it was like to immerse herself in a new culture.
Now in its 15th year, the scheme is set to be the biggest yet, with seventy-one places on offer at eight research institutions, the most ever offered for the International Placement Scheme.
For the first time, there are placements available with the National Museum Institute in New Delhi, the premier institute of its kind in India.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 24 January 2019.
More information on how to apply can be found on the International Placement Scheme web page.
