Through literature and writing, our academics and students look beneath the surface in search of deeper truths – about our world, about our times, about ourselves.

Our courses are ranked top ten by the Guardian University Guide 2018 and top ten in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 (for Creative Writing).
