Student reviews

Overall, I really enjoyed this module. The reading list was definitely not onerous and the module materials were accessible and easy to follow. It was interesting to revisit novels I had read as a child (I still hate 'Little Women') and to discover new authors. The tutor-marked assignment questions were relevant and the 1800 word count really focused the mind. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this module to anyone who is interested in literature.

I would think hard before choosing this module if you are studying a Childhood Studies degree. I personally felt at a massive disadvantage and felt this was suited more to people studying an English degree. This module is the lowest result I've achieved, having previously scored distinctions in my other modules. I enjoyed the set texts and it did open my eyes to other forms of literature but I felt as the course progressed it linked more to literature than childhood studies.
