What is your favourite thing about teaching at the University of East Anglia?

It is an excellent, friendly, supportive and energetic place to learn from and share knowledge with colleagues and students. Teaching Film, Television and Media Studies at the University of East Anglia is a joy! 

What feedback do you receive from students who attend the International Summer School?

Extremely positive feedback reflecting on the well-structured programme which has a balance between studies and social activities, and between theory and practice. They were all very pleased to have learnt new things and to have made a short film as part of the programme.

What advice would you give to a student attending the International Summer School?

Bring your enthusiasm to learn about British culture, film and television; bring your energy to have an amazing month full of fun and learning. And for this July, hopefully no need to bring your umbrella!
