                Level 2: Single, Joint and Combined Honours 2011-12

Another questionnaire! But this one concerns the whole Level 2 programme, rather than individual
modules. Now that you are about to complete your Level 2 studies, we would be grateful if you would
give us your impressions of the overall programme so far.

Please bring this to the Options talk, or email to; or hand in to Student
Support Centre, 19 Abercromby Square.

Please indicate your programme:            Single Honours English
                                           Joint Honours English and ………………..
                                           Combined Honours (Arts/SES/Flexi)

                                                     too easy           too difficult        about right?

2.     Did you find the overall workload in English:
                                                     too light         too heavy             about right?

3.     The following is a list of the main subject-specific skills that we aim to help you with during
       your English studies at Level 2. Tick those which you feel you have developed or improved,
       and put a cross against those which you have not developed or improved. (Note that some
       may not be applicable to you because of the modules you have taken – in that case please put
       n/a against them.)
        ability to read literary texts sensitively and with close attention to detail

        awareness that there is a range of approaches to the reading and criticism of literature

        awareness of the historical and cultural contexts in which literature is grounded

        ability to reflect on your own reading practices, and those of others, so that you
        understand better the factors which influence judgements
        ability to understand and produce linguistic descriptions of English

        ability to recognise and analyse the ways in which language reflects and constructs
        different socio-cultural and ideological contexts
        ability to recognise and use appropriate referencing and other bibliographic

        Transferrable skills: Apart from the subject-specific skills listed above, has the programme
        helped you to develop more general skills? (Again, some in the list may not be applicable.)
        ability to express yourself confidently and articulately in writing
        ability to express yourself confidently and articulately orally
        IT skills
        data-handling and analysis
        interpersonal skills
        others – please specify:
