MA English Literary Studies 2016

What has been the highlight of your time at Exeter?

The highlight for me was being challenged academically. I wasn’t very confident when I came here but then I felt that I rose to the challenge. I was supported by my lecturers and met some lovely people.

What will you miss the most about university?

I am still going to be here because I am doing a PhD in English (supervisor – Nick Groom).  I am looking at an archive that no one has really looked at, so it’s quite interesting!

What advice would you give to current and future students?

Definitely come to Exeter, it is a great place. Speak to your lecturers. If you have any worries, whether that’s personal or academic. One thing that I always felt as an undergraduate is that if I had even one question about piece of work, I wouldn’t ask it and then I would struggle. Just speak to people, ask questions, they are really helpful.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am doing a PhD and I am currently working on an archive web journal. Then I plan to move back to London whilst writing and get a job in a museum, because that’s what I want to do.

Where do you see yourself in ten years’ time?

Hopefully, working in a big museum in London. That’s the aim!
