The purpose of the Cluster Statement is to help students organize and give coherence to their individual program of study. Students will design a cluster of at least five courses that share a conceptual focus. By the end of the third week in Spring Quarter of their third year, students should submit a Cluster Worksheet and one-page statement to their departmental advisor and then the Student Affairs Assistant outlining their interests in the field and designating a “cluster” of at least five courses. Up to two of these courses may be from departments outside English. Students will design a personalized cluster that falls under one of the following four general rubrics: (1) literary and critical theory, (2) form/genre/medium, (3) literature in history, (4) literature and culture(s). Students may include Creative Writing courses within their clusters. See the for more information.
To ramble can mean to walk without any definite route as well as a plant’s ability to put out shoots over walls; in other words, it can mean an exploration that traverses new territories while transcending borders and limits. Combined with a common phrase from a Jane Austen novel, to take a turn about a room or lawn, rambling can also be linked to the circular movement of revolution, of the turns in thinking both on a small and large scale. The aim of this course is to aid you on your rambles and scholastic turns as you develop an independent research project based on an aspect of London’s history, ecology, geography, institutions, society, or culture. Course readings and discussion will be focused on ecologies of place and of reading, and will help you contextualize your object of research. It will also include archival research and fieldwork or excursions to various sites in the city. (H)

Submission and Examination - The University of Manchester
Student complaints are different to student appeals, where a student is dissatisfied with a formal process which has culminated in a decision, for example decisions by examinations boards, outcomes of disciplinary procedures, or investigations of examination offenses. The University has in place appropriate internal procedures for appeals to be considered. Relevant information on student appeals is given in student handbooks and on the student web pages.
Submission and Examination Electronic Thesis Submission
The My ETD Service includes tools that allow Faculty/School postgraduate administrative staff to manage and oversee student submissions. As a result, the submission processes are devolved and integrated with local practices across the University. For example, the management tools allow approved individuals to create submission windows tailored to individual student needs, acknowledge submissions and review the state of any particular student submission. Only approved PGR administrators who have attended appropriate training have access to the My ETD management tools.
