The first year will introduce students to the study of language in general, how sounds become words, and how words are put together to create meaning; students will develop their ability to take language apart, and through their study, students will also learn how to put it together to create clear effective communication. The staff consists of internationally-recognised academics who are experts in their fields. Students will debate literature from different centuries and different continents in lectures, seminars, workshops and one-to-one tutorials. There are also guest lectures by exciting writers and thinkers; previous speakers include Simon Armitage, Andrew Davies (screenwriter), Carol Ann Duffy, Jackie Kay, Andrew Motion and Benjamin Zephaniah. Students will learn to write fluently and persuasively, to articulate complex ideas and arguments, to research topics comprehensively and to challenge existing opinions.
