English Literature offers the opportunity to study an exciting range of modules, blending the study of classic texts and literary traditions with current theoretical models for understanding literature as a dynamic, global phenomenon. Our course is renowned for its inspirational teaching and research excellence. In the 2013 National Student Survey (Source: Unistats), 93 per cent of students agreed that staff had made the subject interesting. Assessments take the form of exams, coursework or a combination of both. Coursework ranges from essays to critical rewrites of well-known literary texts to group presentations. Examinations are normally essay-based or ask for a critical response to a passage from one of the set texts.
