      Description

      Our English Language and English Literature degree scheme looks at ways of analysing language knowledge, language use across contexts and time and relates this to teaching English to speakers of other languages. You will also analyse a range of literary texts from various contexts and historical periods, and explore the complex relationships between literature, politics, and history.

      Opportunities offered to students include the chance to obtain an internationally recognised, professional teaching qualification (Cambridge CELTA) during year 2, subject to interview. Students can also spend a semester abroad internationally. It is also possible to spend a year abroad after year 2 – see our 4 year option.

      We are ranked 7th in the UK within the recent Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014), gaining a score of 100% for the social impact of its research activities.
