There are plenty of opportunities for trained journalists in print, broadcast and online organisations – and you can specialise in areas such as sport, news, features and investigative journalism.

Businesses and agencies also look for journalists to join them in PR, marketing and public affairs.

Professional journalists often visit us as guest lecturers and we’ve developed voluntary opportunities with a range of regional and national organisations so that you can develop your skills in a work setting.

We strongly approve of work placements and our staff will do all they can to help you find opportunities, using the contacts they have.

Our lively, diverse community and ambitious academic environment will broaden your horizons and help you develop your full potential - many of our courses give you the chance to learn another language, study abroad or undertake work placements as you study.

If you’re interested in art, music, drama or film, check out our packed programme of events. Together with our partners in the creative and cultural industries, we’re always working to enrich the cultural life of the university and the wider community.

Our research is groundbreaking and internationally recognised, with real social impact. We support the Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute (CoDE), whose projects include interactive music apps and documenting lifesaving childbirth procedures, as well as nine international research clusters, such as the Centre for Children's Book Studies and the Labour History Research Unit.

In the Research Excellence Framework 2014, six of our subject areas were awarded world-leading status: Law; Art and Design; English Language and Literature, Communication, Cultural and Media Studies; History; Music, Drama, Dance and Performing Arts.

Tuition fee loan

Most English undergraduates take out a tuition fee loan with Student Finance England. The fees are then paid directly to us. The amount you repay each month is linked to your salary and repayments start in April after you graduate.
