I've tried asking a few questions of the admissions people and the course administrators but none of them have got anywhere. I'm wondering if anyone here has done/is doing this course and could answer these questions?
1. What sorts of things did you write about in your personal statement?
2. Do most students on the course have a BA in Modern Languages?
3. How much focus is there on modern (late 19th century onwards) literature? or do you have a lot of choice in terms of what you can focus on?
