Our expert tutors will introduce you to the very latest academic debates in literary studies, and encourage you to examine the role of literature in the wider world.
By tailoring the course to your own research needs and interests you can pursue any literary genre you can imagine, whether it's Arthurian literature or American crime fiction, Scottish Gothic or Irish drama.
You will normally be expected to have a 2:1 honours degree in English or a related discipline. Applicants with alternative qualifications and/or relevant experience may also be considered. Students should provide, along with their postgraduate application, copies of their degree transcript and, if applicable, a copy of their degree award certificate, two reference letters and written work in a subject relevant to literary study.
