A time of nostalgia and chaos

If I were to describe my time at the VU, I would say it was a warm, happy time, which was also crucial for my development as an adult and a critical thinker. Having studied literature, the courses and lecturers not only exposed me to genres and authors I had not even heard of before, but also helped me engage in debate, analysis and discussion on more traditional and classic literature. I felt listened to and taken seriously, which in turn motivated me to think my answers and standpoints through. This all led to a newfound appreciation for my passions and what literature in society can do.
However, I will warn those who enjoy structure and timetables, as it is not uncommon for students to send their lecturers and heads of department 3-4 emails before receiving a response. It’s a large university and as a result, there will be some chaos.

Hi Tessa, I am curious about the Literature and Society Bachelors, if you have studied that one. The study programme consists of a few creative writing modules, and as I am an aspiring writer I am interested in both learning about literature of different cultures and historical periods, as well as developing my writing skills in an environment that provides feedback and may bring connections in the publishing world. Could you tell me what you thought of the creative writing modules, and if you think this degree is a good choice for my aspirations? Have any of the graduates that you know of become published authors? Thank you so much for your time.I am looking forward to your reply, Lana 😊
