Keele University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Studying English Literature at Keele offers you the opportunity to develop your imaginative and critical skills. You will encounter exciting new ways of engaging with literature in English from the medieval period to the modern day. At Keele, you’ll explore the significance of texts within their originating cultures and historical periods and explore a range of approaches to literary study. You’ll consider the historical, socio- political, economic, gender and geographical contexts of fiction, poetry and drama from the medieval period to the present day. You might explore links between literature and film, or engage with exciting new genres such as the graphic novel. You’ll become an imaginative and critical thinker as you explore subjects such as the importance of story, the novel, writing for the screen, post-colonialism, depictions of maternity and scandal. Study English Literature at Keele and you’ll graduate with a wide range of skills – in research, oral and written communication, presentation – as well as excellent opportunities for the future. Some careers may require further study or training, but you might work as a teacher, journalist, editor, librarian, advertising copywriter, solicitor, arts administrator or writer. You could go into marketing, research, broadcasting, publishing, the compiling of dictionaries, or teaching English as a foreign language. If you are thinking of travelling the world after graduation, teaching or working abroad, Keele’s Language Centre offers a variety of language courses. You may graduate with an enhanced degree with foreign language competency or an internationally recognised qualification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
