Undergraduate Study in the Department of English Literature

Come and study at one of the top 30 universities for English in the World (QS, 2022). You will explore, research and study a wide range of literary specialisms, from Old English to digital cultures, and everything in between.

I love studying English at Birmingham. You are taught new fields of study and apply them to texts to see them in a new light. My favourite is postcolonial criticism, as you see how racial identities are portrayed across time and how they have changed.
