Superb Learning Opportunities

Students in a lecture in Pontio

At undergraduate and postgraduate level, we offer a broad and and flexible range of module choices in English Literature and Creative Studies.

Our students benefit from small seminar groups, one-to-one tutorials, workshops and lectures. With award-winning pastoral care, one-to-one support and individualised feedback, we get to know our students as individuals and enable them to pursue their own creative interests.
