On Studying English

The student view

Student Writing Competition

Every year the English Subject Centre asked students to write about their experience of studying English by entering a competition. Some students wrote traditional essays and others responded with pieces of Creative Writing: both give prospective students a great insight into what it’s like to be an English or Creative Writing student. Have a look at some of the work produced by following the links below:
