Course Introduction

If you're thinking of studying BA English, books probably already play an enormous part in your life. If you're ready to explore more widely, think more deeply and consider how you, as a reader, are placed in relation to a text ' and how that affects your interpretation ' then English is the programme for you. English is also particularly good at developing the transferable personal skills that employers value in graduates. It fosters imagination, independence of thought and intellectual flexibility.
