English has been so much fun, the classics you get to read are amazing; A Room of One’s Own, She Stoops to Conquer, Shakespeare, Chaucer etc, there is a broad range of genres and ages to read through and it broadens your knowledge

Love my course so much. For an English lit degree it is so modern and there is so much freedom to chose exactly what you want to study. All of the lecturers are incredible and I feel challenged and supported. read more

Literature from a large breadth of historical perioids studied. One seminar per module per week provides opportunities for discussion and analysis. Most lectures engaging, some more analytical which can be difficult with with a large group. Personal tutor available is necessary though not seen regularly. read more

English Language and Philosophy, BA Hons FullTime

I took this course because I'm very passionate about my two subjects so I have genuinely enjoyed the content so far. Teaching and my learning experience however have been majorly impacted by COVID. First years of 2020 have genuinely suffered because of the pandemic. This has been made worse by a habit of the ENCAP department of throwing a lot of information at students at the same time. Though communication now is satisfactory, the lack of emails and coherent communication at the start of the course was shocking. read more

I love English I have done for years and I absolute love that I'm studying English at university. The course can repeat itself at times and being taught English language by so many foreign tutors can be a bit strange at times but no matter I love this course, my friends on it and I look forward to being able to apply my knowledge in my future career. read more

I love my course, it's the perfect balance of two subjects that I really enjoy, and the course content is excellent; the core English modules focus on both novels and poetry, ranging from Charles Dickens and Charlotte Bronte to J.G Ballard and Philip K. Dick. There is a wide range of History modules to choose from, including Modern Wales, Early Modern England and Wales, and Asia and the West. Most lecturers and tutors are supportive and teach well (there's always the few dull ones, it's inevitable!), and the level of research put into the course is incredibly high, so you're always getting the latest insight into your studies. Overall this is a really good course! read more
