Our BA and MA programmes have been rated in 2011 and 2012 as the best in the Netherlands by the two leading university league tables. English Literature and Culture offers an attractive and challenging programme that allows students optimal choice from a range of courses (which changes every year) drawing on the full historical and geographical sweep of literatures in English. Students may also take courses from our other MA programme Writing, Editing, and Mediating.


Our staff have received their doctorates from Dutch universities as well as international institutions including Oxford, Cambridge, Toronto, and Edinburgh. At the same time, students' theses are supervised by researchers whose work is being published and read throughout the English-speaking world.

Note that all our courses are delivered in English and are only suitable for candidates who can comfortably function in English at postgraduate level.

You will be equipped with the tools to identify and explain the quality of literary works in times of increasing commercialisation. You will learn how literature circulates within the market as part of a creative industry sustained by centuries-old tradition, and you will investigate from theoretical and practical angles how to help to spread literature, explain it to a broader public, and translate academic insights for the reading public.
