About the Department of English and Media

We’re a diverse community of over 800 students, exploring subjects that further our understanding of culture and communication in this global age, from Film Studies to Applied Linguistics. 

We focus on the skills and knowledge valued by employers, providing our students with valuable industry insight through links with creative organisations.

Our students take part in many activities to prepare for their future careers, including work placements, study abroad opportunities, talks by internationally acclaimed guest speakers, and research conferences. They even have the chance to get writing advice from our Royal Literary Fund Fellow.

We’re part of the Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences, a hub for creative and cultural industries whose groundbreaking research has real social impact.
