The study of English at the University of St Andrews has a long and distinguished history that is sustained in the scholarly, critical, and creative dynamism of today's School of English. In the present day, the School enjoys an international reputation as a centre for both academic research and literary creativity. In the 2008 RAE, the School had 70% of its research and writing rated as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'. The School's richest inheritance, however, is its collegiality: we pride ourselves on our friendliness, and on our common enthusiasm for great literature.
