Isobel Sigley, MA English Literatures, PHD Loughborough University

"There were plenty of opportunities to get involved in organising and attending conferences and research events, which helped to give a well-rounded experience of academia. The best thing about English at Keele though, undoubtedly, is the staff. Every member of the English department was welcoming, enthusiastic, and, most importantly, supportive. Thanks to the staff, I have learnt so much in my whirlwind year at Keele, not only in terms of developing my knowledge about English literature but also in terms of justifying the importance of my own research, and the Humanities in general".
