BA (Hons) English Literature

I decided to become a student blogger because I felt it would be the perfect way to share with others just how much I am enjoying my university experience.”

“I’ve loved reading since I was very young and picked up a Harry Potter book for the first time, so it came as no surprise to me when I decided I wanted to study English Literature at degree level. I chose to study the course at Edge Hill University because I like how it includes such a wide range of texts and forms, giving me the chance to study the classics, modern texts, films, video games and role-playing games.

By studying this degree I feel I will be gaining a qualification that will provide me with experience in dealing with so many different forms of literature, which I believe will help me stand out from the crowd.

I decided to become a student blogger because I felt it would be the perfect way to share with others just how much I am enjoying my university experience. I remember what it was like applying to university and having so many questions to ask, so I wanted to help answer those questions for others.

Because I enjoy writing I have found the blog to be a great form to experiment with, meaning I can write about everything from English Literature to my experiences at Edge Hill during my first year. I also try to write about the details that you only learn about by experiencing life here, such as living in halls, moving away from home and Christmas on campus.

These topics relate to my favourite thing about Edge Hill, which is living with great friends. There are so many opportunities here to make fantastic memories and there is always something fun going on, while having the freedom and make your own decisions about what to do and when to do it is just great.

Although I am still considering my career options, blogging has confirmed to me how much I really do enjoy writing, so I am aiming to do something involving that or continuing with my education and studying a master degree.”
