Mission and vision

In the coming years the Department of English Literature & Creative Writing will continue to build on current areas of strength in research and teaching to further enhance its national and international reputation.

It will also continue to attract, nurture and support students of the highest calibre; make a significant contribution to the academic discipline; and contribute to a larger societal appreciation of literature and culture.

Currently ranked 11th in the UK out of 106 departments, we aim to become a Top Ten Department in the next three years.
