The high standard of our English courses is reflected by the National Student Survey with over 90% of students commenting positively on our teaching. We have an active research department and our research was recognised as 'world leading' in the latest Research Assessment Exercise.
Our postgraduate English courses develop your professional critical and analytical skills, and the MA Writing is among the most highly-regarded writing courses in the UK. We are also one of the few universities that supervise you through to completion of a novel, script, or collection of poems or stories.
