What we Teach

The following table lists the undergraduate English modules that have recently run. Please note that not all the modules listed in this table will run each year, while we also often add new modules reflecting our staff's latest research.

The table is divided into level 4, 5, and 6 modules. You will take level 4 modules in your first year and you will typically take level 5 modules in your second year and level 6 modules in your final year. Modules are loosely arranged into seven broad subject areas, and you can use the menu on the right to filter the modules by area.
