When the world opens up, be ready to take it on

2021 is a year of new opportunities in the Department of English, Media and Culture, and one of our most exciting is the launch of a brand-new English Language and Literature joint honours programme which allows you to not only immerse yourself in diverse and challenging literary texts, and to become an astute and sophisticated linguistic thinker, but also to achieve a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) qualification.

The CELTA is the gold standard in language teaching qualifications, with three out of four English Language teaching positions requiring a this qualification. This addition to your BA, built into our new programme, enriches your undergraduate degree with a globally-recognised qualification which can take you around the world and connect you to communities of learners internationally. Whether you see yourself working at a language school, working flexibly as a private tutor or simply want to make yourself stand out in the crowd when applying for a PGCE, our English Language and Literature joint honours programme now combines your subject specific expertise with a practice-based qualification in a way that will leave you ready to take on the world.
