Several of us are excited to be up early to talk to potential students in Clearing this morning.
While waiting for the calls to begin, we’re enjoying reading English graduate stories which are being shared with our colleague @ProfKatyShaw on twitter:
If you’re interested in talking to us about a possible place our Clearing Hotline number is 0800 085 1085
I’m looking forward to visiting Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College in Darlington this afternoon to talk about studying English at university.
One thing we’ll be looking at is Jorge Luis Borges’s story Pierre Menard, author of the Quixote
I’m looking forward to seeing what the students think about it.
I’m also planning to show them this undergraduate essay:
That’s the video essay. There’s also a written essay to accompany it here
Colleagues at Northumbria love visiting schools and working with students and teachers.
Do get in touch if you’e like to visit us or for us to visit you.
Remember also that we have an exciting event coming up next Wednesday when Lynne Murphy will be talking about differences between British and American English in our Annual Linguistics Lecture
There are still places available for Lynne’s talk but do book if you’d like to come
