About BA English Literature and Community Engagement

This unique degree, the first of its kind in the country, offers you the chance to gain an undergraduate degree and to share what you are learning in the wider community.

It combines the study of a full range of literature in English, from the medieval period to the present day, with a community engagement element. You will run a reading group or undertake similar work in the community as part of your degree.

Although this course is aimed primarily at mature students, students on this course range widely in age (from those in their 20s to those aged over 70), and in prior educational experience and background. We encourage applications from those returning to education after a period of time away from studying. Each application will be judged on its own merits.

The Department of English also offers a range of short, preparatory courses which may be appropriate for those who wish to progress onto this course.
