Students looking out over the Barbican

Introducing you to advanced research skills, the MA English Literature programme seeks to provide a range of research experiences, including writing in different academic genres, project management and public speaking.

Some of our students have independently built on this experience to create their own events. Two students recently collaborated on a highly successful conference, Representations of Modernity, which attracted international notice and guest speakers from prestigious UK institutions.

They said: “We were inspired by the MA programme and the diversity of topics we covered."
