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.

Our courses are highly ranked in the UK, sitting 4th for languages and linguistics in the Guardian University Guide 2024. We are also ranked top 5 in the UK for overall student satisfaction* in English literature by the National Student Survey 2023.

94 per cent of our undergraduate and 91 per cent of our postgraduate taught School of Literature and Languages graduates are in employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes survey 2023, HESA).
