Propaganda and Ideology in Everyday Life

The University of Nottingham and the British Library have joined forces to create a free online course looking at how propaganda and ideology fit in to everyday life.

Macbeth (Filter) @ Liverpool Everyman

Filter is one of my favourite theatre companies, whether for its wonderfully anarchic Shakespeare productions or for its thought-provoking new writing, so it is with no small regret that I have to confess to disappointment at Macbeth.

Get a global local education

One of the biggest innovations in international higher education in the past 15 years or so has been the growth in international branch campuses.

Exams are coming…

Naturally, the best way to prepare for exams is to know the course content, however the mental preparation is equally as important.

Skyscrapers, Mountains and Great Adventures; Studying Abroad at The University of Hong Kong

Sometimes being a little bit reckless has its benefits. When I first applied to study abroad for the autumn semester of my second year I didn’t really think it through.

The 8th March was International Women’s Day and the celebrations ranged from respect for, and appreciation of women, to a celebration for women’s political, economic and social achievements.
