Course Introduction

Choose English literature at UEL and study with people who share your passion for the written word. You will develop your understanding of the complex relationships between texts, authors and readers and build a body of knowledge about many different forms of literature. You will have the opportunity to go on an international exchange in your second year (students have recently travelled to Australia, Canada, the US and China). UEL's going global bursary provides funds for international study or research. You can also apply for one of a range of research internships that are available to humanities students and elect a volunteering module in the second year of study. You will receive support for your teaching ambitions and apply to UEL's student associate scheme, which matches prospective teachers with placements in local schools. Equip yourself with the skills for a variety of careers, including teaching, journalism, publishing, corporate communications, arts and media, local government and business.
