English Studies

Programmes and courses

While the study of literature used to lie at the heart of the English Studies Department and is still important, we also offer many other lively English modules for a variety of study and career needs, with an increasing emphasis on language in our major. Please note that these are not beginners' courses in English; a good prior command of the language is necessary in all cases.

Owing to the constraints of distance education, we do not offer courses in spoken English communication. However, we do offer certain short learning programmes; see below.

Short Learning Programmes

We offer contact-taught and distance certificate courses, for example, in  Teaching English as a Foreign Language to Adults, Business Writing Skills, and an Introduction to Creative Writing (poetry only) . Some of these courses are intended for beginners. Click HERE for more information.
