    I’ve applies for English at Stirling, Strathclyde, Dundee, Edinburgh Napier and Aberdeen, although the only ones I’m considering are Strathclyde and Stirling really.
    I want to have an idea of what lectures are like, what things you study, what essays you write, etc. Any English students here to help me get an idea of what uni will be like?

    Hi, a first year English with creative writing student here!

    At the uni I'm studying at, I have lectures twice a week and they are 50 minutes each. The lectures are really interesting and the lecturers go into detail (not just reading off a PowerPoint). During this second semester, the modules I am studying are Early modern comedy and poetry. In early modern comedy I am studying Shakespeare's comedies ('As You Like It' and 'Twelfth Night') and some restoration plays from an anthology. In this module, we look at things such as gender, sexuality and pastoral life in Shakespeare's plays. In the poetry module, we look at things such as Image and representation, poetry and protest, and experience and experiment. We look at contemporary poets like Emily Berry and Don Paterson. Overall, this course is great! As for essays, we write them about the topics we have studied in class.

    All in all, I think you will enjoy the course. Good luck with the application process and hope you get the university you want to go to🙂

    Hi mate I'd like your courses could you please 🙏 provide me a couple of papers of your poetry works. I'm poor when it comes to poetry
