    Hey there guys,

    I'm Philip...I'm a mature (well 29) student at Perth College UHI which is part of the University of the Highlands and Islands...I became part of this forum thanks to a revelation I had over the weekend...such an amazing experience at my church in Perth.

    Say hi,

    Would be good to get to know people from other Uni's and hopefully there are people from UHI also

    It is a very small university so I doubt there are many UHI students on this forum. I suggest you make use of the search function (top right) to find students.

    Oh really? That's cool, not Viking Studies by any chance?

    Yes, Viking Studies. And only the dissertation left to do.

    Ohh! I quite like the look of UHI's Nordic Centre, some of their courses do look very interesting. How much of it did you do via distance learning?

    I did all of it via distance learning because I'm also working full-time as a freelance writer and translator. I don't want to lie, it was extremely hard when it came to essay deadlines but the people at the Centre for Nordic Studies are all very helpful and passionate. Certainly, for my career it was the best I could do, I got various projects through this MLitt and the connections I made on it. Now I'm even applying for a PhD.

    Oh right, good to know it's possible to do the whole thing via distance learning. I'd love to move up there but not sure how feasible it'd be. PhD eh, that sounds ambitious - good luck! What will you be researching?

    Yes, actually I think most people on the more research-orientated postgrad programmes do them via distance. I certainly wouldn't have been able to afford moving to Orkney or Shetland. Well, the PhD depends entirely on getting funding. If so, it would be interdisciplinary with runology at its core.

    Some people find TSR via Google, others find TSR through messages from God.

    Each to their own!
