David Prosser

David has studied on a number of English Literature and Creative Writing courses at ICE, most recently the Undergraduate Certificate in English Literature in 2019. 


I’m retired now, but I first arrived at ICE in 2008 as a Chartered Accountant – after a 27-year absence from education – having applied for a course on a whim. An epiphany followed, and to date, I’ve completed a dozen short courses, two Undergraduate Certificates and a Master’s degree. ICE has high-calibre tutors and staff, a beautiful learning environment… and stonking breakfasts. Since coming here to study, I’ve had short stories published, plays performed, and a short film garlanded with multiple awards. I’d had no idea I could write dramatically. By gaining a deeper understanding of literature and sharpening my critical mind, my latest course is helping me develop my creative writing even further.

It has always been my dream to study English Literature, and I’m so grateful that ICE has made this possible. I am a work-at-home mother of two young children and ICE has given me the opportunity to study flexibly alongside other commitments. I have a Bachelor of Commerce and worked in a large corporation for 8 years before finally deciding to follow my passion. The support from tutors and fellow students has been amazing, despite the distance. I’ve learned so much since starting this course; not only about literary analysis but I’ve also learned more about myself too. I’ve had such a positive experience so far and I’d love to return to study another course someday soon.

I have really enjoyed the variety of the material covered in the course as well as the range of tutors. I’ve fallen in love with English literature and I wouldn’t have engaged with had it not been for the interactive classes. The course has developed my appreciation and understanding of literature as well as my confidence to explore English more broadly.
