Watch a short video about why Sarah chose to study BA Comparative Literature and Film Studies.
What advice would you give to new students thinking about studying with us?
If you are thinking about joining us in SLLF a piece of advice I would give is to not be afraid to ask questions and be proactive, especially as the department as a whole, provides students with many opportunities.
Why did you choose to study at QMUL?
The reason why I primarily chose to study at QMUL was because of the range of courses the university offers and the location. I knew that by studying in such a culturally diverse city such as London, I would be able to learn more about different cultures and experience new things.
What attracted you to your programme?
I was mainly attracted to my programme as it was a course that I had never heard about prior. I knew that I loved literature and film and upon more research, I discovered the richness behind comparative literature and film.
What do you enjoy the most about your programme?
What I enjoy most about my course is the variety it offers in terms of content, as a result, I have really been able to develop and broaden my perspective on society and everyday life.
How do you think studying your degree is helping you to reach your future career goals?
Studying my degree has helped me develop a valuable skillset such as critical thinking, creativity, and cultural intelligence; therefore, I’m certain that my degree has allowed me to become more equipped in reaching my future career goals.
How do you like to spend your time away from your studies?
Away from my studies, I mostly like to spend my time reading magazines and watching programmes about fashion, so that I feel inspired to develop my own small fashion projects such as Lookbooks.
What you would like to do after you finish your studies?
After I finish my studies, I plan on working for a PR company, particularly in fashion and beauty PR.
Do you have any advice for students moving to/ studying in London?
For anyone studying in London, my main piece of advice would be to really take your time exploring and becoming more familiar with the city in your free time. They are many free things to do in London, including visiting galleries, gardens, and attractions, which are not available anywhere else in the world.
