Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

An English degree from the University of Bristol gives you the opportunity to study the full breadth and range of literature written in English.

Year one lays strong foundations, providing training in close reading, critical and theoretical approaches, and in the skills and conventions of academic writing, alongside the study of poetry, narrative writing and drama from the medieval period to the mid-eighteenth century. You may also choose an optional unit or a unit from another department in the University.

In year two the continued study of successive periods of English literature, from the mid-eighteenth century to the present day, is complemented by work on individual authors and topics chosen from a list of research-led special subject units, including creative writing, as well as options related to earlier literature. You may choose to study abroad for one teaching block of your second year.

The third year offers a combination of options in later literature, in trans-historical topics and in special subjects, as well as the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of your own choosing.
