    What is so special about the English Literature course on offer at Warwick? I have had a look at the Warwick site, but there does not seem to be anything unique :confused: x

    I guess it depends where your interest lies as to how good the course offered by Warwick seems. From my limited experience the teaching staff seem to be very good (only come across a few as I don't do English)

    One of the strong points is certainly the excellent links with the RSC so for any literature students with an interest in Shakespeare it is of benefit. The CAPITAL (Centre for Creativity and Performance in Teaching and Learning) centre is an excellent resource, modern learning spaces and performance spaces, lots of specialist modules and workshops offered, lots of trips to the RSC, very cheap tickets etc. Plus a non shakespeare focus on other playwrights and student writing. Creative writing is also very strong at Warwick with a range of facilities and links to other departments

    As with all courses/departments, just depends on your own interests but Warwick is a good uni with a strong department.

    Warwick seems to have a great deal of flexibility with module options, e.g. you can do The Practice of Poetry if you want, or you can do loads of Shakespeare, or you can do no Shakespeare at all. Looks good to me!

    The opinion of megduck is basically that of the English department at my college, and i'm won over by it. There's just such a breadth in english courses, that the undergraduate degree course is really groundworks for further study, it's not good to concentrate on specific areas and ignore other areas.

    Also, as everyone is taking the same compulsory modules, the course is generally more coherent, the lecturers can link more between the other modules they know you're sitting, the whole course just knits better together.

    Well done on getting interviews, i'm still waiting to hear..... keep getting these consolatory 'we really haven't forgotten you, honest - no really!' emails. Better than nothing though, i suppose.

    I think it is because the Uni has a good reputation and does really push the students to read challenging texts. The English department is big too, so there are many module options to suit various interests.
