“I've really enjoyed the MLitt course. The online/distance teaching works a treat, and the advent of the internet has made such a difference. Apart from actual face to face contact through video-conference - yes, oral presentations are possible from 10,000 miles away - all the lecturers are really quick and helpful in answering email questions, and the resources that are available online are fascinating.” [Graham Hannaford, current taught postgraduate student, UHI Centre for History]
