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. 

  • The Complete University Guide 2020 ranks us sixth for creative writing and The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020 places us in the top 10.
