    anyone know of any decent English or English & American literature courses that tend to be in clearing or are likely to be?
    Or even any good uni's that have lower requirements?

    I'm only going to offer advice on this first question since I'm not sure on the second. With regard to this question though, there's no point really basing any clearing plans on past years. The clearing lists change from year to year and courses which are in one year, may not be the next. There's really no point speculating on which courses will be in clearing and which won't be.

    You can't do American Lit as a degree, it's a module. You could do English and American studies however.

    Yes you can, there's quite a few unis that do joint honours in English and American Literature.

    And what are the career prospects for them?

    I do not see how this is relevant to what the OP was asking. The career prospects wouldn't be any simpler or greater to that of someone who graduated with an English Literature degree.

    My uni, UEA, has a very good American Studies department, and is one of the best places to do English Lit. They don't tend to have much in clearing, but if you call them on results day, they are sometimes able to find places for people, especially in American Studies. A sort of unofficial clearing. As for how useful an American Studies degree is, American studies with/and English literature would give you a very broad field of knowledge and skills. Another option is American Studies with a year in america - years abroad are looked on very favourably by employers, I'm assured, so that's a very good option too.
