09/2014 - 06/2017, BA (Hons) English, Canterbury Christ Church
Completed an independent dissertation on Cynewulf. With only a weekly tutorial to supervise my dissertation I had to be extremely self-motivated. I set my own deadlines and targets, and became confident in taking direction from my tutors while developing their advice, though my own initiative, into new areas of study that would be useful in my work. I gained excellent experience in the research, organization and presentation of a complex subject and attained first class marks.
I was also called upon during the course to give seminar presentations as part of a team. This required the careful structuring and organization of ideas into a PowerPoint presentation. My forward planning was vital for progressive and well paced delivery and this enabled me to develop excellent communication skills as well as developing a good working relationship within a team.
