Clifton campus

This unique degree offers mature students the chance to gain an undergraduate degree from the University of Bristol and to share what you are learning in the wider community.

It combines study of a full range of English literature, from the medieval period to the present day, with a community engagement element. You will design and run a community-engagement project (such as a reading group) in a community setting as part of your degree.

This course is taught part-time on one evening a week over six years and is aimed primarily at mature students. However, students on this course range widely in age, prior educational experience and background. We encourage applications from those returning to education after a period of time away from studying. Each application will be judged on its own merits.

The Department of English also offers a range of short preparatory courses which may be appropriate for those who wish to progress to this course.
