If your love of the English language is matched only by your fascination for the breadth of its literature this distinctive degree is an ideal choice. Develop a sophisticated understanding of both the language and a variety of texts from core periods of literary history â from the medieval to the present day, with the opportunity to take units focused on central issues in the study of English language. You will examine a range of key texts in literary and linguistic history, and a choice of specialist units will further deepen your appreciation of English literature across genres and eras.

So far I have had a much better experience here than I did at my previous university! I have a better social life and feel more a part of a community through my involvement with the Cheer team, Rep scheme and Ambassadorship.
The careers team is wonderful- helping me to set up a plan for how to improve my CV and gain relevant work experience, even getting me in touch with an organisation I now volunteer for.
The mental health services team is very helpful in informing me of how best to get the right support from the uni itself and my doctor. They keep in touch regularly to make sure that I am feeling and coping okay too.
I love my course and the staff could not be more supportive.
If there was anything that they could improve on it is the Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) scheme as not a lot of students know who their PAT is nor what they should be used for, However this has already been discussed in a meeting with the union and the reps so changes are about to be put in place hopefully
