English courses

Develop your critical, analytical and writing skills on our research-driven undergraduate English and creative writing courses. 

We take a wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary approach, combining traditional modules with elective modules covering a range of philosophical, social, political, cultural and historical topics. We also support you to publish your own poetry, scripts or prose.

On all our courses you'll be taught by published researchers and established writers, and develop transferable skills through work-based projects and optional extended placements. We also offer masters-level English and creative writing courses, as well as PhD study within the Humanities Research Centre.

In the 2023 Guardian University League Table we are ranked 4th out of 22 universities for overall student satisfaction in creative writing.
