" I think because there’s more choice on the Applied English MA than more traditional MA routes, it really helps you find your areas of focus because you can try so many different areas of study. And the formative feedback along the way, including willingness of pod tutors to look at small pieces of work up to 500 words, is brilliant. My only regret is I can’t go and do another 12 pods! "
