Postgraduate Study

Postgraduate students are an integral part of this research-intensive school. At any one time there is a community of around 70 students reading for either MLitt, MSt Res, MFA, MPhil or PhD degrees in English. Research students' work covers the broadest ranges within English, American and Commonwealth literature, while taught MLitt degrees cover periods from Old English to the present day.

It offers benchrooms of networked computers for all postgraduates and shared office-space for more senior PhD students as well as a common room, kitchen and lovely private garden, all within five minutes' walk of both the School and the University Library.

All research postgraduates are associate members of at least one of the School's four research groups:
