Student Profiles

Emma Rooke

"I've had no hesitation in recommending the course - it's been a wonderful experience and I've loved the structure, topics and diversity of it."

David Traves

"The MA has truly been a highlight of the last two years and I will take away so many positive things from the experience of completing it. Not simply in allowing me to achieve the grade I received; but even more importantly how much my writing both creative and academic was improved by the experience and simply how much I enjoyed the last two years studies."
