This innovative and flexible programme gives you the opportunity to specialise simultaneously in several areas of English Studies:
Literature 1500 to the Present
Drama and Creative Writing
Medieval Literature and Language
English Language and Applied Linguistics
This MA will particularly suit you if you wish to broaden the range of your experiences as an undergraduate without losing the focus and depth which characterises postgraduate study.
Students who are keen to pursue a career teaching English in higher education, together with in-service teachers who wish to update their skills, will also find this course particularly useful, as it provides an ideal introduction to the main subject-areas encompassed within English Studies.
All MA students in the School of English join a lively and thriving postgraduate community.

In consultation with the course convenor, you may choose to write your dissertation on a new topic or you may extend your research into a topic already addressed in assessed work, with the provison that you must not substantially repeat work that has already been assessed.
You will be assigned a tutor to supervise your dissertation, which will normally be written up during the summer months, from June to September.
This course can be taken over 1 year, full-time (September to September) or part-time over 2 to 3 years.
The MA consists of taught modules totalling 120 credits (which are taken during the autumn and spring semesters) and a 60-credit dissertation module (undertaken over the summer period).
Full-time students normally take 60 credits of taught modules in each semester; part-time students normally take 30 credits.
All taught modules are assessed by written work of between 3,000 words (for a 15 credit module) and 6,000 words (for a 30 credit module), which is set towards the end of the semester in which the module is taught.
The dissertation module is assessed by written work of 14,000 words.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
