Love reading and dissecting the written word? Dream of crafting great stories of your own? Want to explore the word of influential philosophers? No matter what you’re after, we have the right course for you.
In our undergraduate English and Creative Writing courses, published authors and scholars will lead your practical exploration. You'll cover fiction and narrative, poetry and literary theory, as well as creative non-fiction. Workshops, seminars, lectures and one-to-one tutorials will bring your learning to life. More importantly, you'll explore your ideas alongside those of other writers, artists and thinkers.
Novelists, poets, editors and publishers will also play a part in your learning. These guest lectures will give you a varied perspective of literature. From genre to getting work in print, you'll get advice from people who've been there and done it.
In our philosophy courses, we will guide you through traditional philosophers, including Kant, Nietzsche, Heidegger and Foucault, treating along the way their ideas concerning such fundamental problems as the nature of time, the human, ethical or political practices, and history.
You'll also get access to superb library facilities and outstanding levels of support. No matter which degree you choose.
On selected courses, we are offering a new way to complete your degree: using pathways. This is an alternative route that you can choose to take in the second year of your full-time undergraduate degree. It will tailor the modules you take in the rest of your course to focus on an area that you are passionate about, or want to base your future career around.
