Finvola Dunphy – English Literature

Bangor’s stunning landscapes provide the perfect setting in which to delve into the works of Dickens, Shakespeare and Joyce. A day spent in the awesome Shankland Reading Room fills me with inspiration and I find myself rushing off to research. Being in an environment with other like-minded students who have a love of literature is incredibly motivating.

Francesca Sciarrillo is from Mold, Flintshire in North Wales and is studying English Literature.

The highlight of my course so far has been developing my own writing skills and being able to study all different time periods and genres. I particularly like the fact that modules are available to look specifically at Welsh Literature in English, or Literature from all four nations.
