Karan Aujla - English graduate
‘After attending the open day where I met lecturers and gained a real insight into the course, I knew immediately that studying English at DMU would suit me perfectly.
The course offers such a diverse range of modules that I was able to choose areas which suited my personal areas of interest, my favourite being the “Shakespeare and Marlowe” module, which complimented my dissertation on Shakespeare’s tragedies. I was also able to choose modules which offered a variation of lectures and workshops, and coursework and exams. But the course would not have been as enjoyable without the enthusiastic and supportive staff; I found myself inspired by their expertise which motivated me to work hard to meet their expectations. The English staff helped to improve my abilities, getting me to “think outside the box” and to trust and develop my own ideas.
I will definitely miss studying English at DMU, but the course has given me the confidence to secure a place on the Primary PGCE course at University of Leicester.’
