Student experience

Introducing you to advanced research skills, the MA English Literature programme seeks to provide a range of research experiences, including writing in different academic genres, project management and public speaking.

Some of our students have independently built on this experience to create their own events. Teresa Sanders and Emily Packer recently collaborated on a highly successful conference, Representations of Modernity, which attracted international notice and guest speakers from prestigious UK institutions.

Teresa says: “We were inspired by the MA programme and the diversity of topics we covered."

Teresa and Emily also created a blog to support their conference theme.
