Why Study English?

This site is for those students who are choosing a subject to study at degree level. It contains information and advice about preparing for uni, what it’s like to study English, and the opportunities an English degree may create for you.

As an English student, you’ll study literature, language, culture, history, and may develop your creative writing skills. You’ll have the flexibility to learn about what you enjoy most. At the same time, you’ll develop valuable skills for any number of career choices.

This website was produced by an organisation which doesn’t represent any particular university. It’s written by a recent graduate to provide straightforward and relevant information about studying English at uni. This site is now being managed by the English Association.
