We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The School of English and Drama brings together two of Queen Mary's outstanding departments: the Department of English and the Department of Drama.
Both departments are large and dynamic centres of research excellence. Our staff have national and international reputations for excellence. Due to the outstanding quality of our academic's research, we were ranked first out of all UK Drama departments in the last National Research Exercise and fifth out of all UK English departments in the last National Research Exercise. Our researchers are also committed to excellence in teaching, as evidenced by our high scores in student satisfaction.
Queen Mary offers the perfect location to study drama or literature. As a student at a London university, you will have access to the city's many theatres, galleries, museums, libraries, and other cultural resources. And as a student of a campus university, you will benefit from a close-knit campus community located on the picturesque Regent's Canal.
