We are in the top 3 English departments in the UK for student satisfaction (NSS 2018).
We offer a wide range of options to choose from, diverse forms of coursework assessment (but no exams) and excellent employment prospects.
Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014).
We get you out of the classroom on a range of interesting fieldtrips.

We never lose sight of the pleasure that comes from reading, discussing and writing.
