More than a degree

I was introduced to Across The Pond at a graduate fair at the University of Toronto – if it wasn’t for them, I may never have so easily considered studying in the UK. I am now completing my MA in English Literary Studies at the University of York, and I can say without a doubt that it has been the best six months of my life. Moving to the UK, especially a beautiful, friendly city like York has been much more than a degree for me. The postgraduate English department at the university is extremely accessible and welcoming. There is an instant connection between students and professors. The research facilities, conferences, seminars, talks and events enrich the experience even more.

The UK has been especially a great place for me because of the nature of my program. My research focuses on renaissance and drama which makes England the perfect location for me. Also, York itself is a very special and memorable city. Amongst the many qualities, one of my favourite things about it is most certainly the people.
