Postgraduate Study

English in the School of Arts has a thriving postgraduate presence at both MA and PhD Level. English has a vibrant research culture at PhD level, encompassing Literature, Linguistics and Creative Writing.

Postgraduate English at Leicester

We cover a wide range of topics, from Charles Dickens to Christopher Marlowe, from Caribbean Literature to Middle English lyric, from Contemporary American Writing to Gender Studies, and from the Pre-Raphaelites to the 18th-Century Novel.

Through our arrangements for teaching, supervision and support, we are committed to meeting the individual and shared needs of all of our postgraduate students. Postgraduate students are integral members of the School, with their own Postgraduate Student-Staff Committee, English Postgraduate Society (SPELL), Research Forum and representation on Boards of Studies.
