When I came across the Integrated Degree in English at Goldsmiths it was perfect for me.

Main details

Country United Kingdom

At the age of 29, the idea of returning to my studies was a daunting one. I had always loved literature and I hope to teach and inspire English students myself one day. But having been out of education for so long, I had no idea where to begin. When I came across the Integrated Degree in English at Goldsmiths it was perfect for me. I had spent the last 10 years as a stay-at-home mum and now had four young children.  My decision to enrol was the one of the best I have made. Not only have I spent the last year learning about a subject I love, but during that year I felt both supported and confident, with the help of my tutors and fellow students. The texts we studied were both engaging and interesting, and really gave me a chance to reignite my love for literature whilst expanding my ability and understanding academically. I finished the foundation year full of pride at what I had achieved, and confident to start my English BA.
