At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too.
Studying English Literature at Keele offers you the opportunity to develop your imaginative and critical skills. You will encounter exciting new ways of engaging

At Keele, you'll explore the significance of texts within their originating cultures and historical periods and explore a range of approaches to literary study.

You might explore links between literature and film, or engage with exciting new genres such as the graphic novel. You'll become an imaginative and critical thinker as you explore subjects such as the importance of story, the novel, writing for the screen, post-colonialism, depictions of maternity and scandal.
