Student Profile(s)

Lina Samawi

What attracted you to this course?
I always wanted to do a Master’s outside Jordan where I come from. What I like about this programme is that it's very broad, and covers both English and American literature – meaning that I will be able to do most things when I return home. Kent offered everything I was most comfortable with and where I could work at my best – the campus, its green setting and the University's reputation and ranking.

What do you think of the teaching?
I am happy with the teaching which is of a very high quality. My classes are not too big – usually ten to 15 of us – which means that our teachers are able to devote more time to individual students.

What are the facilities like on campus?
The library has plenty of material for my course. Just about everything I've searched for during the year, I have found there.

What's the level of support like?
It's very good. When I first arrived, I was a little confused about everything – the classes, the programme, the theory, but I spoke to my Head of Department and he was very supportive. I wasn't used to writing essays so that was a little hard for me. But academic staff including, surprisingly, professors who didn't teach me, were happy to help.

What's your advice for other potential postgraduates?
Go for it! It's a very interesting programme and I'm enjoying it.
