Durham University English Lit Applicant Thread

I haven't seen a thread be posted yet so I thought I'd make one myself.
How are your applications going?? What A-levels do you guys do?

Hey there :smile:

As an English Literature student myself, studying here at Durham, I was glad to see keen applicants seeking out their own thread on TSR!

I hope everything is going well with everyone's A-levels and/or BTECs, and that the application process is going smoothly for you all. Any questions at all you may have, we'll be sure to keep an eye out for them on this thread! Hoping I can be helpful with any enquiries you may have regarding English studies at Durham, or about the student experience more widely 🌟

Below I've linked some things you may find useful (if you haven't already found them, ofc!):

Blog post from one of our English students: https://studentblog.webspace.durham.ac.uk/a-day-in-the-life-of-an-english-student/

Vlog from another one of our English students: https://studentblog.webspace.durham.ac.uk/studying-english-at-durham-2/

And another little link to one of my favourite things to keep up to date with...
Research in English At Durham: https://readdurhamenglish.wordpress.com/

They're just a few things that I wish I had known about during my application process, and that I believe would have provided a bit more comfort about coming to Durham to study English (hoping you find them helpful :smile:)

Again, any queries at all, both Himieka and I (who run this account) will try our best to get back to you as soon as possible 🧑*💻

Just as a little fun fact, and to answer your question about A-levels, I studied English Literature, English Language and Drama at A-level. I look forward to hearing what others are studying, and how they're finding things!

Until then, best of luck with everything!
