We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Influencing the world since 1583, the University of Edinburgh is the ideal place to further your understanding of, and contribution to, global cultures.
Our School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) offers one of the widest range of languages of any UK university, from Arabic to Norwegian, Scottish Gaelic to Japanese.
Based in the first UNESCO City of Literature, we are home to the oldest department of English Literature in the UK - one of the longest established in the world - and the oldest Celtic department in Scotland.
From Translation Studies to Comparative Literature, we don’t just teach our subjects, we live them in the classroom, thriving on our place in a global festival city, with masters degrees in Theatre, Film, and Creative Writing.
