You can study English Literature (in single honours and a range of combined honours combinations), English and American Literature (single honours), or English and Creative Writing (single honours).  We teach a wide range of literary texts from the Renaissance period to the present day.

English offers teaching in tutorial groups (about twenty students but sometimes fewer) in all three years. Tutorials, which are held in the Chancellor's Building in the heart of the campus, are supplemented by lectures in rooms nearby equipped with appropriate audio-visual aids.

Staff, all experts in their fields, teach modules carefully designed by individuals or by teams. As well as teaching tutorials in small groups, they all offer students consultation hours at which they can discuss their progress and plan the development of their work. Students are regularly asked to comment on the delivery of programmes and they are invited to attend planning meetings.

English has an active Student Staff Voice Committee, and places a high value on good communications with students, both formal and informal.
