Student Profile(s)

Charlie Jones

What made you choose NTU?

"I did my undergraduate degree here and wanted to remain part of an amazing academic community, the lecturers are absolutely amazing, supportive, and inspirational. The course I chose was unique amongst other English postgraduate degrees as it is research based. I didn’t even consider applying elsewhere due to the fantastic experience I had with my undergraduate study at NTU and wanted the opportunity to develop my own ideas."

What did you enjoy most about your course at NTU?

"I got the chance to develop my knowledge independently in the field of my choice, whilst bolstering my knowledge of broader literary theories. I got to take my research in the direction I wanted to, developing my own theories, with the continued support of the team at NTU."

What did you think about the facilities available to you?

"The facilities were excellent – the Library scheme to have books and journals ordered for you if they weren’t currently held was incredibly helpful."

How do you think the course, and having a postgraduate qualification, helped you to progress your career?

"Having moved into a more corporate role, the course has enabled me to develop my critical thinking, organisational, and research skills, which has led to me running my own team within a company within a very short space of time."

In a nutshell why would you recommend your course and NTU?

"I’d recommend this course as it gives you the ability and confidence to develop and trust in your own ideas, you are thoroughly encouraged to take your research in the direction you are passionate about, and the lecturers are of phenomenal calibre and contribute to a wonderful research culture.
