My name is Dale Horne. I'm an enthusiastic, extroverted & interested student and I live at Noosa in Queensland. I study at the Banyo Campus of the Australian Catholic University. This year I will complete my Bachelor of Arts (Literature/History Majors). In 2013 I attended the Summer School at Oxford University - English Literature Course held at Exeter College. The subjects were Critical Reading & Shakespeare Stage to Screen. Based on my Oxford results, ACU approved my credit for both courses.
The highlights of my experienceThe whole experience was amazing. To be tutored in a group of 12 students means there is no place to hide. You must contribute. The tutors' feedback on my assignments with a one on one session was invaluable. Even as a mature aged student aged 66 I was taken seriously which was important to me. It did change me in that I came away with a feeling of accomplishment and that nothing could stop me from achieving my goal of further study after completing my undergraduate degree, which I expect to do this year. Already I am being offered postgraduate study at ACU.

I hope to return, to take a graduate AIM Overseas course.
I often look back at my 3 weeks in Oxford as the course is greatly encouraging, enlightening, fun and thoroughly worthwhile doing. The atmosphere is amazing. To spend time with like-minded people and discuss the subjects was great !!!
