International students

Our School is an international community, with staff and students from many different countries. 

Undergraduate students from other European countries take modules in the School as part of their Erasmus exchange programme. Some students from this School, especially those taking American and Canadian Studies, spend a year abroad, and we welcome students from our partner institutions in exchange. 

Our postgraduate community is particularly diverse, with students from over a dozen different countries studying at the Shakespeare Institute, in English Language, on Masters programmes such as MA Film and Television, MRes Directing, and MA English Literature. Doctoral researchers too come from all over the world, studying subjects as diverse as US foreign policy, Corpus Linguistics, Early-Modern Literature, and Creative Writing. 

As a School we particularly welcome visiting scholars to the Centre for Advanced Research in English, where up to 40 visitors a year stay for anything from a few weeks to several months. We have strong research links with colleagues in Canada, Italy, Australia, the US and China.
