The best element of this course is its multidisciplinary approach to the study of education, and the incorporation of other subject areas. The incredible diversity of a week’s lectures has challenged me to think holistically and to write with versatility. As someone with very wide interests, I have thoroughly enjoyed the breadth of subjects spanned on the course, and it has allowed me to find areas of particular interest in which to specialise in my final year.
The drama papers are excitingly full of potential to work with your course mates on practical projects, exploring with freedom any areas of theatrical interest you might have. These group production opportunities that I have been involved with, and also the small group supervisions that are part of the written papers, have encouraged me to engage critically with my own experiences of education and upbringing, in relation to those of other people on a local, national, and global scale.
