BA English


University of London International Programmes

Visit the website of the University of London International Programmes for more details.


Our English programme gives you the opportunity to study and enjoy some of the great literatures of the world, immersing yourself in a range of works from the Middle Ages to the present day. The programme was redeveloped in 2012 to include a range of new optional courses, including ‘Introduction to Creative Writing’, ‘Language and the Media’ and 'Language and Gender'. Popular literature courses, such as 'Postcolonial Literatures in English', 'American Literature' and 'Drama since 1860' reflect exciting new global approaches to English studies in the 21st century.  Your study experience will be enriched by online support through tutor groups, e-seminars and formative assessment.

Studying this programme will enable you to:

  • expand your knowledge and understanding of cultural, historical and regional evolutions or continuities of literatures in English
  • develop an understanding of the diverse and sometimes conflicting ways in which literary texts have been interpreted and area being reinterpreted
  • gain the skills to read, discuss and write about literary and non-literary texts effectively and with confidence.
