About the course
Literature is a dynamic force of change: it shapes people and events and creates vivid, enduring and deeply moving art. Writing and writers are central to Hull’s status as City of Culture in 2017 and the English programmes at Hull will provide students with exciting opportunities to be part of the literary and creative scene at the University and beyond.
With Philip Larkin, Winifred Holtby and Andrew Marvell among the notable figures who have left their literary mark on the city, you don’t have to look far for inspiration to fire your imagination.
We are passionate, friendly and dedicated teachers and, together with our students, we have a strong sense of community. If you need advice or support with your studies, or an issue is worrying you, your academic support tutor will be there to help you throughout your time with us. In fact, 96% of our students said they received sufficient advice and support with their studies in the National Student Survey 2015.
Our staff are experts in their field who are actively involved in producing published materials, and many modules have been developed from their research interests giving you flexibility in structuring your studies to suit your particular interests. Employers value the skills gained through studying a degree in English and you will graduate with the ability to present ideas clearly and compellingly in writing, presentations and discussions.
We also offer English with a foundation year. This course is ideal if you have taken time away from education or need to enhance your language and writing skills, helping you to prepare for study at degree level.
