The Course

The MA by Research in English is designed for students who have a passion to pursue a research project defined by themselves, but with the support of an academic environment and supervisors.

You have the opportunity to conduct in-depth research into an area of your choice. With the help of dedicated skills sessions and under the guidance of an academic supervisor, you will be expected to write a dissertation, or produce a piece of creative writing of around 25,000 words.

The School offers a vibrant research culture with two research groups (21C Research Group and Nineteenth-Century Research Group) and regular research seminars. Research strengths include 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st Century literature, Gothic literature, women's writing, utopianism, American fiction, medieval and Renaissance literature, and contemporary drama.

How You Study

Study takes the form of supervised individual research. You work on one topic of your choice for the duration of the study period. On a regular basis, you will be expected to produce appropriate written work, submit it to your supervisors, then meet with your supervisors to receive feedback on your submission and agree the next stage of work.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.
