My programme really set me up for my future career with modules including: Marketing, Editing and Publishing, Web Design, Graphic Design and Desktop Publishing, Publishing Design, and Publishing Law.
The course was very varied and students were entitled to choose from a range of modules. The dissertation module was especially interesting, allowing freedom in topics but with assistance from a personal tutor.
Wish that we weren't still learning course content during Coursework weeks. Very distracting and puts a hold on work as I'm not sure whether or not I'll want to write on it or not - meaning it's all left to the last minute.
I loved both courses that I studied for; not only because I was fully invested in the subjects and that there were a wide range of optional modules that appealed to my specific tastes, but also because the lecturers were all friendly and knowledgeable. The standard of teaching was fantastic. I have left Loughborough with two degrees, but I have also enjoyed every second of working towards them.
I really loved the flexibility of my course, which allowed me to study a varied range of modules across two departments. There is a wide variety of optional modules for my course so I could really tailor my degree to my interests.
Having professors teaching you that have published their own works is incredibly exciting and motivating. The standard of their teaching is high and it shows in the results that we all get, plus the course content is interesting and stimulating.
I loved my course - lecturers are fun and the modules are varied. The course allows you to pick and choose modules that suit you and there is a lot of opportunity to tailor your degree. For English, the hours of teaching are lower than other courses but I do still feel that it is value for money.
Due to a smaller student to staff ration than other universities, students were known by name as well as specifics such as our specialisations and interests. This meant that I would be approached by members of staff from around the department who wanted to discuss my research ideas and were always keen to help out with my next ventures!
Whilst I didn't see my personal tutor often (through my own choice), she was always there whenever I need her for support. I enjoyed my course and the variety of modules were exciting, engaging and led by passionate lecturers and academics.
