The course looked excellent, there was an internship module and it was in a nice part of London.

What did you enjoy most about your course?

Either writing my dissertation or the critical readings in musicology module.

Were there any lecturers who particularly inspired you?

Kyle Devine was (and still is) incredibly helpful in guiding my dissertation, discussing work with me and suggesting further study options.
