English at Leicester

Welcome to English at Leicester.

We combine cutting-edge research with enthusiastic teaching, fantastic careers support, and a varied calendar of extra-curricular and social events.

As an undergraduate student, you can choose to focus on English, with optional pathways in English Language and Creative Writing, or to combine English with American Studies, History, History of Art, Film Studies, French, Italian or Spanish. Depending on the degree programme you choose, you can also opt to spend a year abroad in Europe or in the US.

You can also study at postgraduate level on one of our many masters’ courses or continue your studies with a research degree in English or Creative Writing or Applied Linguistics.

A wide selection of visiting speakers and extra-curricular events will enable you to expand your subject knowledge and improve your analytical skills. There are many English societies and committees to enhance your participation and interest in your studies.
