I chose York because it’s one of the few departments in the country to offer a nineteenth century MA course – not to mention the beauty of the city! I didn’t know much about the University itself before I got here, but everything I’ve experienced so far has been wonderful and made me really glad I chose to come here. The Humanities Research Centre is a fantastic concept, but what’s really made my time at York so different is just how friendly and inclusive the Department is, from academics letting me pester them with my ideas to the wide range of research seminars and guest lectures.
With any luck I’ll still be here next year doing my PhD with one of the foremost academics in the field I’m interested in. My MA degree has been self-funded, with part-time work on the side – the balance is challenging but definitely doable.
