English at Plymouth

With English and creative writing you have the opportunity to choose a range of courses which will feed your interest in literature, challenge you to sharpen your critical and analytical skills and allow you to choose to study and practise creative writing. We encourage you to interpret not only the texts you'll read but also the world around you in more subtle and penetrating ways.

  • Free set texts for all core modules on the degree plus Amazon vouchers to help subsidise the cost of other set texts. 
  • Free field trips in each year of study. 
  • Lectures from visiting academics and writers e.g. Germaine Greer, Ali Smith, Blake Morrison.
  • Opportunity to attend a wide range of theatrical events and performance poetry at the Plymouth Theatre Royal and Peninsula Arts. 
  • We’re very proud of our National Student Survey (NSS) 2017 return showing 98% of BA (Hons) English students found our staff are good at explaining things. 96% of BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing students expressed overall satisfaction with the course.
