English literature and creative writing

In their study of literature, our academics and students look beneath the surface in search of deeper meanings – and explore what writing tells us about our world, our times, our past, and ourselves.

We are ranked in the top 10 for creative writing in the Complete University Guide 2019 and top 10 in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.
