The foundation year gives you an exciting introduction to higher education, exploring the humanities and social sciences before progressing to the full degree programme. It’s ideal if you need a little more support after further education or if you are returning to education after a gap.
You will explore a range of styles and genres, as well as studying the history, traditions and theory of English Literature.
You will be taught by experienced writers whose works have been widely published, broadcast and performed, as well as academic staff internationally recognized for their research.
You can also spend a semester studying in the USA, Canada, China, Hong Kong or Singapore.
