Students from around the world are now able to study toward a Masters degree from the University of Nottingham in the comfort of their own home.
The MA in English Studies is the latest course offered by the School via a web-based distance learning programme.
Dr Louise Mullany, Director of Distance Learning at the department, said: “We were being inundated with requests for a course with literature-based components as well as options that combined modern English language studies with a more historical approach.”
“As we had an MA English Studies on-site which fulfilled many of these criteria, it seemed like a logical step to develop this on-site course into a distance programme”.
The department now has more than 120 students studying in twenty-five countries.
