We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
Thanks – I assume distance learning modules are chosen in the same way as part-time on site?
Yes. Not all of our on-site modules are available by distance learning (and vice versa!) but all students register for modules at the same time (in the summer / July). The registration form will indicate which modules are available by which pathway.
Do students choose their optional modules at the start of the MA or as they go along?
Hi Joanna! If you’re studying full-time then you’ll choose all of your modules in the summer before you start. If you’re part-time then each summer you’ll choose your modules for that academic year. This means that you’ll end up choosing them each year as you go.
Dr Erin Sullivan and Roxanne McLean are now available to answer your questions on postgraduate study at the Shakespeare Institute. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by the delayed start to the live Q&A.
Choosing the right course and university for you is an extremely important decision. Here at The Shakespeare Institute in the heart of Shakespeare’s Stratford upon Avon, you will be taught in an international environment by academic staff working at the forefront of their subjects.
