Student Profile(s)

Anna Wells

“I had been away from formal study for some time and had not studied at postgraduate level so my expectations were general - interest, challenge and new areas. It has met these expectations well… I could not find a taught medieval master’s locally in Melbourne. This was the best distance learning course I could find in terms of the modules it offered and UWTSD has experience in distance learning study… [The best things about the course are] the module content, essay feedback and prompt and supportive emails from the tutor.” - Anna Wells, MA Medieval Studies (online), Melbourne, Australia

Stephanie O'Donoghue

“I am enjoying it so far. My tutor (and all the other staff I have dealt with) is very knowledgeable and helpful and the subject matter is fascinating… I knew that I wanted to study medieval history and was particularly attracted to the course because it dealt with monastic history and had a tutor who was a recognised authority in that area. Also because it was available to study by distance learning and the cost is very reasonable” - Stephanie O'Donoghue, PG Cert Medieval Studies.

Christopher Garwood

“I like both the course subjects and the module conveners who have all given good feedback on assignments… I first chose to study with UWTSD as they offered a distance learning programme in a field in which I was interested. I enjoyed my time as a DL student and decided to continue on with another programme which was also of interest to me.”
