Indulge your love for the written or spoken word, exploring major aspects of English language and taking inspiration from classic and contemporary literature, with our choice of English degrees.
You can explore how the English language has developed over time, how it is changing and what it is used for, or immerse yourself in classic literature and popular writing from the past 500 years while also exploring less traditional areas of specialism.
You can study English Language or English Literature as Single Honours degrees, combine the two subjects in a single programme, or study English, English Language or English Literature in combination with a range of other subjects. Alternatively, you can train to teach English.
My advice would be: don’t let fear stop you from taking all the opportunities you can. You’re probably more capable than you think you are.

Open Days and Virtual Events
If you are considering studying at Edge Hill University, the best way we usually recommend to gain an insight into the student experience is to see our stunning campus for yourself by attending an open day.
Our August 2020 open day is going virtual. We will ensure that you can still discover everything that Edge Hill University has to offer and get answers to all of your questions. You will be able to find out more about English and the University through a series of online activities.
We are continuing to take bookings for subsequent open days while monitoring government advice regarding events. We will communicate all key information to anyone who books to attend.
