Join us on Thursday 23 February 2023, from 6-8pm (UK time) for a virtual open event for the Foundation Certificate in English Literature. This will give you the chance to meet the course directors, discover more about the different study options and have your questions answered.
Do you love reading a wide range of books, and discussing your reading with others? Would you like to study literature in more depth and develop solid skills in critical analysis? Our part-time Foundation Certificate in English Literature covers a range of writing from Shakespeare to the 20th century and teaches skills in the analysis of literature, including the ability to read closely and to recognise and apply approaches in contemporary literary theory.
Taught part-time over two years, the course is equivalent to the first year of a full-time undergraduate English degree. It is modelled on the first year of Oxford University’s BA programme in English Language and Literature, and is taught mainly by members of the University’s English Faculty.
Two study options are available, including one mostly online, so you can choose your preferred mode of study to fit around your work, home or family life.
