MA student features in Study International

The latest issue of Study International [1], the student magazine guide to overseas study, has featured an article by MA in Comparative Literature (Paris) [2] student Jennifer Ward.

Jennifer details her experience on the programme, spending her first term in Canterbury, before her term overseas at our Paris campus. ‘It seems strange now just how quickly we fitted in,’ she observes, ‘even my minimal knowledge of language didn’t seem too big an obstacle.’

The MA in Comparative Literature [4] is one of several innovative programmes offered by Kent to be split between our Canterbury and European campuses. The modules available explore themes and major figures in European literature and aesthetics from the 18th century to the present, and interactions between European literatures, in such genres as autobiography, drama and the fantastic, all studied in English.

The full magazine is available online, with the article appearing in pages 80-81. To download it, please click the link below: [5]StudyInt
