Master of Arts (Writing)
"I decided to study this course as it was offered entirely online, and after marrying the captain of a super yacht and embarking on a life at sea with him as a stewardess, it was my only option!
I enjoy the weekly assignments, which keep me motivated, and the weekly discussions and banter with other students.
The work is manageable but still challenging, which I enjoy, and the sense of community with the other students adds so much to the experience."
