  • access scholarly materials online through 'Moodle', our virtual learning environment

What our students say

 I have only positive things to say about the MA programme in general, and feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such committed, motivating, competent and enthusiastic lecturers. I also thoroughly enjoyed the summer school experiences, and am glad that I managed to attend three! 

Lisa Macwan
MA in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching

I could honestly have not wished for a better experience as a distance learner. It seems to me that every effort has been made to integrate distance students into the intellectual and practical life of the department, wherever possible. Alongside the extremely high quality of teaching and in depth, sacrificial mentoring, this makes for a wonderful learning experience that I'd be happy to recommend to anyone. A brilliant course that has really helped me to hone my skills and extend my interests.
