Why Study English Literature?

An A level in English Literature is well regarded by universities and business institutions. It is an ideal complement to all other subjects, because it provides communication, reflection, forward thinking and creativity. Taking English at degree level offers a wide variety of career options in both the academic and vocational arenas. The course not only allows you to develop your interest and enjoyment of literary study, but also hones your skills of analysis, evaluation, problem solving and communication which prepare you for the world of work whatever career you decide to pursue. The breadth of opportunity the course offers allows students who are passionate about reading to engage with a range of texts from the Victorian novel to the contemporary poetry scene.
