Find out what else our students have said about our department.
A year ago when I began my search for a university to pursue an MA in Renaissance Literature, there was only one school that I really wanted to attend, needless to say it was the Department of English and Related Literature at York.
I graduated from university about four years earlier and had been teaching 'A' Level Literature for that time period. So when the opportunity arose to do an MA, I was hoping to attend a university with not only excellent research and teaching credentials but a strong interest in the field of the Renaissance. I got that and more in York.
Apart from the excellent credentials, the teaching staff in the department, which is very affable apart from learned, encourages us to follow our passions and provides us the space to do so. The creation of CREMS has been an added bonus with regular opportunities to interact with leading scholars in the field from near and far. The city with its history and quaint feel, and the campus with its wild fowl and open spaces make York an ideal place to live and work - a definite change from the hustle of a city like Singapore.
