The Department of English Studies is one of the top ranked in the country. We offer a unique learning experience in a beautiful environment. Our work combines a strong sense of tradition with a commitment to innovation and new approaches, and we have a particular strength in interdisciplinary research.
Students in English Studies can choose specialised topics across the whole range of the subject area from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day. The Department provides an intimate, dynamic and supportive environment in which to undertake a postgraduate degree and offers the most up-to-date training in methods and skills. Our academic staff, who produce research of the highest international calibre, strive to connect with both the local community and a global network of students, scholars, artists and professionals.
The Department is consistently rated as one of the top UK English departments by The Times Good University Guide.
The Department’s work ethos is that teaching and research should complement one another at all levels of academic enquiry. A postgraduate degree in English Studies therefore enables students to consolidate their existing skills and interests while exploring the cutting edge of the discipline.
