About us

Our programmes are designed to build on the knowledge you have already gained: you will learn more about the writer’s craft, the ideas expressed through literature and the complex relationships between texts and their contexts.

Crucially, you will be working in a community of lecturers and students eager to debate these issues with you and share knowledge. Our lecturers are passionate about their specialisms and committed to supporting their students. Our teaching methods are characterised by variety and flexibility, mixing interactive seminars with formal lectures and individual tutorials, and making use of the latest learning technologies.

We offer a BA in English Literature, single or combined honours.

We also offer a range of postgraduate study options. 


Our English Literature BA is jointly rated as the best in the country for overall student satisfaction achieving a score of 100%
