Creative Writing, BA Hons

By On 19th April 16

Very interesting and eye opening. A truly inspiring course, quite a lot of writing and usually on stuff you want to write. You can learn so much and the source material is incredible.

English Language and English Language Teaching, BA Hons

By On 14th August 16

Not much to say, but this is a somewhat specialized degree, just make sure you really want to become a teacher after you graduate. I actually wanted to switch to a different degree but I didn't bother to in the end.

English Language and Literature, BA Hons

By On 31st July 15

As a Language/Literature student, it's hard to qualify the value of my course. The Literature side of things offers me interesting content with a view of building analytical skills etc. that can be transferred to the employment world. There is also the potential to even be interviewed for jobs considering that Literature is a prestige degree. The problem for me comes solely from the Language modules. Not only are they the most dull, but they also boast the record for the most pointless study and research fields known to man. Even if you would like to have some 'exciting' job in Linguistics after university such as writing a dictionary - the fun! - I would advise avoiding this area of study at all costs.

History side was fab, loved every minute, tutor was great, felt i had a lot of supoort. However Literature i didn't find very enjoyable, felt a lack of communication between the department/teachers and students, didn't feel a great deal of support

Philosophy and Literature, BA Hons

By On 13th August 15

This is an amazing course! You learn so much, have the opportunity to push yourself and there is a great support network when you need it. I admit that I enjoy the Philosophy side a lot more than the Literature side because of the module choices however, both are super fun.
