Hey all!

So if you're applying right now to English (as I know interviews etc must be coming up soon), I'm opening the floor to any questions relating to applications, interviews, courses or university life. Go for it and ask me anything you feel would be useful. Appropriate, obviously lol.

I'm currently in my 3rd year at UCL (University College London)

Good luck to you all!

I've done Old English all 3 years of my degree and I absolutely love it. It's very logical and translation based compared to any other module on offer, plus lots of interesting Anglo Saxon history. The stories and poems themselves also have very interesting plots - Anglo Saxons loved their weird monsters and all that. It does require a lot of work between seminars though - we translate up to 60 lines of Anglo Saxon per seminar in 2nd/3rd years. If you love it though, this doesn't put you off.

You get a sample of Old English that is compulsory in 1st year that will probably better inform your decision.

I don't take Old Icelandic but a couple of my close friends do and they really enjoy it. Lots of Norse myths and that kind of thing - also lots of translation. The class is quite small so lots of one to one teaching which is helpful.
