Medieval English: Sex, Gender & Culture MA
I had a great time doing my undergraduate degree at King’s. I really liked the department, and particularly the tutors who are always approachable and constructive. I felt I could really get another year out of this kind of study, and wanted to develop my skills.
I chose this programme because the tutors are inspiring, and their research is innovative and dynamic. I enjoy studying the medieval period, especially the disciplinary diversity of studying Old English, which is a totally different language. The incorporation of contemporary literary theory was also a key appeal. It is a small course, so there is a personal feel. The master’s year has enriched my experience of college life. I have loved the freedom to pursue my own intellectual interests and get involved in lots of voluntary activities and student ambassador work.
I love living in London – I think it’s especially suited to those who value their independence; it’s the polar opposite to a cosy campus. If you take the initiative to find out what’s going on in the city, there are a staggering amount of opportunities, and lots for free or at student-friendly prices.
