    Hi!Sadly, I have no idea how the masters programme looks like as I am an undergraduate student . However, I am taking a Viking course this term so I do have classes with the members of staff who also coordinate and lecture in postgraduate programme. I hope that I will be able to help at least a bit. To start with, department is small. And I mean seriously small - there aren't many postgrads (I think they even have classes in the lecturers' offices or so I gathered from one of my visits to the personal tutor) and they are cramped together with History of Art department in a small building but I'm not really sure about the number of teachers. Personally, I had lectures with four of them and as far as lectures go, they are pretty good. Apparently few of them are some kind of big - shots in their area of study... I think one is the expert on Anglo - Saxon Chronicle and the other dabbles mostly with Sweden (not that I am particularly interested in their research, so I don't know any details... Can't say that I am going to ever continue with anything even remotely connected with Scandinavia). Also my personal tutor is crazy about Swedish 13th century law and I have to admit here that she is the most optimistic person that I have ever had pleasure to meet.I do not know what else I could say... But if you have any questions I will try to answer them in the best way I can and I hope that you will also find someone with more substantial knowledge.
