University of Winchester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
In the first academic year, a balanced study of English Literature and English Language is pursued. English Literature modules focus on the development of critical reading skills – this includes an introduction to the various forms of literary theory that are the basis for the various forms of analysis of literary texts. English Language modules establish a fundamental knowledge of key areas such as syntax, morphology, semantics, phonetics and phonology. In the second academic year, the majority of study is in English Literature where modules are based around a historical period, and there is also a wide range of English Language modules for you to choose from. The third academic year offers modules where the study is more specialised. In English Literature, the focus may be on detailed study of the literature dealing with a particular topic or the advanced analysis of literature from a particular critical perspective. English Language modules offer the opportunity to develop the depth of analysis and the sophistication of research techniques brought to bear on the topic.
