It’s great to be back! And to those who’ve just joined us, it’s good to see you. We hope you’re finding your way around your course sites and the Hub – and other spaces such as Twitter, where you’ll find existing students and alumni offering advice. Thanks to all who’ve done that already.
it’s a hard job following in Jen’s footsteps. She has been a fantastic programme director for the past three years as many people have already observed. She’s been a great help to me over this summer as I began to take over the role. It’s an interesting time to be programme director as the programme is 10 years old this year (more about this later). And 9 years ago, in another life, I started as a student on IDEL myself. A lot has changed since then, but it remains a fabulous community of students, teachers, alumni and friends of the programme. I hope you all enjoy your studies as much as I did!
Remember to keep checking into the Hub as there’ll be more announcements coming and lots of new ideas. I’m sure that 2015-16 is going to be a year to remember.
